The Sheriff’s Department has recently informed our communities about an increase in home and car thefts in the area and Covered Bridge Estates is not immune from the effect.
A recent report of burglary in our neighborhood reminds us to be diligent and watchful. Remember to lock your vehicles and remove any valuables when parking overnight. Keep your home well-lit to deter criminals from lurking in the shadows. Watch out for your neighbors and report suspicious activities to the police. If you know that your neighbor will be away for a period of time, help them out by periodically checking their property for signs of entry.
