The Amarillo Police Department worked 23 different burglaries at home last week.  That's 23 homes that were invaded and lost valuable items.  However, most of these might have been prevented if the residents have of done one thing.


Close and secure the garage door.

Although 23 burglaries isn't an insane amount in Amarillo, it is when the reason is the burglars were gaining entries into the homes through an open garage.

The APD wants to remind you to close your garage door.

Also if you park your vehicle outside take your garage door opener inside with you and don't leave it in your vehicle.
