On The Lookout: Daytime Burglary Update

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - Since our story first aired in September, the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation tells WMDT daytime burglaries are under control at this point.

But when highly active, burglars will stalk houses until homeowners are gone and specifically take jewelry and electronics.

Some ways to help investigators re-locate any lost items, writing down serial numbers for all electronic devices and taking pictures of jewelry. This only protects you after the crime.

"People can challenge those would be suspicious people, 'who do you work for? Do you have an id card for it? Does the logo on the shirt match what you say you are doing? Do you have a Wicomico Peddlers License to be doing what you're doing?'" said Sgt. David Owens of WBI.

Owens says that more than 90 percent of criminals arrested for committing a daytime burglary are stealing to satisfy their drug habit.
