Theft Awareness for the Holidays

In recent months, the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office has seen an increase in theft and burglary activity within the county.

“There have been multiple arrests for burglary and theft related charges,” said Sgt. Mike Bradwell in a press release. “This is common during the holiday season and the Sheriff’s Office would like to spread awareness throughout the county to its residents.”

“To combat an increasing problem, we would like to work in cooperation with the citizens of Colusa County to make sure they are aware of the current trend,” Bradwell stated.

He cautioned residents to ensure vehicles and their homes and businesses are secured.

“Additionally, residents should keep equipment and other property in secured or lighted locations,” he said. “It’s the first level deterrent.”

Here are few tips to help deter theft this holiday season:

â–  Keep your travel plans offline. If you are planning to travel during the holiday season, be sure to keep your travel plans off your social media networks.

â–  Notify a trusted neighbor if you are traveling and give them a list of authorized individuals and contact information. Have all suspicious activity reported.

â–  Keep an eye out for packages. Know when packages will be delivered and arrange for someone to receive them, or a secure location for packages to be dropped off.

Any information related to suspicious activity or thefts should be reported to the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office (530) 458-0200 or the Colusa County Narcotics Enforcement Team at (530) 458-0222.
