Outreach by the Police

Last week, a number of residents got the email posted below. It describes a burglary that happened when people posing as roofers tricked a resident into walking outside while an acoomplice went in and burglarized the house.

It's good. We need to know these things. It should be better. It should specifically discuss what to do when someone posing as a tradesman comes to your door. Door to door solicitation of business is illegal in North Bay Village and you should refuse to engage and call the police is probably the best advice.

But the intention's good. Maybe it should have gone out around the time the incident happened, January 19 rather than February 24, and that might have helped the apprehension of the suspects. A month is long time.
