Public Service Announcement: Residential Burglaries
The Lomita Sheriff Station’s Surveillance Apprehension Team (SAT) has been actively investigating residential burglaries throughout the station’s reporting districts, particularly at homes that back up to trails, golf courses, or open areas.
With the holidays approaching, the risk of such crimes increases. Tips on preventing burglaries include:
- See something, say something.
- Communicate with neighbors and let them know if you’ll be leaving town.
- Make your residence appear like you are home such as putting lights on timers.
If you see suspicious activity or persons, contact the Lomita Sheriff’s Department at 310-539-1661, or 9-1-1 if it is an emergency.
