Home Burglaries on the Increase in the 2nd District MPD

There's been an uptick in burglaries in the Second District. While we sleep, robbers have been breaking into our homes, especially in the wee hours.  Here is the update from Detective Alan Hill on what you can do to prevent your home from being robbed:
The Second District has experienced residential burglaries over the last week. These burglaries have been clustered around the northern end of the Second District (PSA 201, 202,203) in areas such as the 3900 to 3400 blocks of Harrison, Morrison and have extended down Connecticut Ave around Van Ness Street.
These burglaries have taken place mostly in the early morning hours between 1:00am and 5:00am. The common element in most of these burglaries is that the individual enters the rear of the home from an alleyway and checks for unlocked doors and windows. Once inside the individual(s) are removing electronic items and personal effects such as wallets purses and keys.
The members of the Second District have stopped several persons of interest in the area, and we ask that the community remain attentive to their surroundings. Please secure your doors and windows and take note of people and vehicles that do not reside in the area.
In the early morning hours of September 5, 2010, a female was stopped operating a gold in color Dodge SUV. It is believed that this individual dropped off a relative known to have a history of burglary.
