CIU detectives report that house doors, garages, cars and property were left unlocked, open or unsecured in 25 percent of burglary and theft cases recently reported in the Liberty Park area. Officers will walk District 5 neighborhoods tomorrow — weather permitting — to offer burglary prevention tips and to educate the public on easy ways to report suspicious activity.
