Police stress importance of home security measures
An attempted burglary on East Street near the East and Maple Streets intersection on January 24 was foiled by an audible alarm that began to sound when the intruder forced the front door of the residence open. Inspector Booth of the Carlisle Police Department reports that nothing inside the house was disturbed. He states that no one was home at the time of the break and that neighbors who were home and heard the alarm did not see any vehicles or people fleeing the scene.
In a press release issued on Monday, January 28, Booth states: "The Carlisle Police Department would like to remind every resident of the importance of locking their windows and doors and setting their alarms. Surrounding cities and towns have been responding to numerous house and car breaks, and we have been extremely fortunate not to have had any recently." Booth continues with a request for residents to cooperate in the police effort to protect the town against further burglaries by notifying the police immediately about suspicious or out-of-the-ordinary events. He says, "Any information is extremely helpful, a license plate or description of any vehicles or people not familiar to your neighborhood."
