“It’s just not something you would ever expect here. No one even locks their doors,” says West Davis resident Kevin Dougger.
But, the Davis Police Department says the town has seen an uptick in residential burglaries. Within the last two weeks, there have been 22 reported home robberies.
West Davis has been hit the hardest — with 10 a matter of 14 days. Police reports indicate thieves have taken laptops, jewelry, electronics and gaming systems.
“I might need to start locking my doors and windows,” Dougger says.
Police say in almost every reported incident, victims failed to properly secure their homes. The police department does not have any suspects.
