Community calls on law enforcement after rise in burglaries

Posted on November 10th, 2010 No Comments

A recent rise in burglaries in the Sunnyside Gardens neighborhood on Houston’s south side has caused community members to ask for increased law enforcement in the area.  Compared to 2009, burglaries in the area are up by 11 percent.  From January to September in 2009, there were 339 burglaries in the area and 375 for the same time period in 2010.

Community members say that the rise in burglaries is a result of an increase in vacant properties in the area.  Since September, the area has had 30 burglaries and police have tried to pay more attention to the neighborhood.  Houston Police Department Assistant Chief of Police Daniel Perales stated, “Officers have been able to successfully arrest and charge several suspects and we are continuing the investigation in order to arrest and charge additional suspects”.
