In Manchester, police say last week was a week for burglars
Between July 1 and July 7, police investigated 30 burglaries at homes and businesses, police said.
The 25 residential burglaries were clustered in densely packed neighborhoods, generally from Lake Avenue into the city's West Side.
Police say burglaries at homes happen increasingly during the summer months, when residents are on vacation.
• Secure windows and if you keep a window open, use a wireless window alarm that will activate if someone tries to raise the window.
• Don't provide obvious signs that you are away. Have someone mow your lawn, and don't mention vacation plans on social media, which can be accessed by would-be burglars.
• Secure window-mount air conditioners so intruders can't push them in to gain access.
• Call police if door-to-door salespeople make you nervous. Some people go door-to-door seeking empty houses.
• Use shades to keep people from being tempted by what is inside your home.
• Use timers for inside lights and a radio when you are away.
• Don't put the boxes for new, big-ticket electronics at the curb on trash day.
Police also advise homeowners to look after each other by calling police when they spot suspicious people in the neighborhood.
