Vehicle Burglaries

The Big Spring Police Department is seeking the communities’ assistance in preventing a recent trend of Burglary of Vehicles in which firearms have been taken. This appears to be a crime of opportunity and a victim assisted crime in which suspects are simply checking for unsecured vehicle doors and then entering the vehicles to commit thefts to include firearms. The Big Spring Police Department encourages our citizens that when they lock their vehicle doors to ensure that the doors are locked by either physically checking the door handle or if done by remote, to ensure the audible vehicle tone signaling that the vehicle is locked is heard. Also, should you keep a firearm inside your vehicle, ensure that you have recorded the make, model, caliber and serial number in a secure location that can be easily accessed if needed to give to police should you fall victim to this type of crime.

If you have any information regarding these recent burglaries please contact Crime Stoppers at 432-263-8477 (TIPS), or text 274637 and in the body of the message type in “kash” (5274) along with the tip. You can also leave a secure tip on our Facebook page under the submit a tip icon on the left side of the page.
