Sheriff’s Office warns citizens about a criminal trend

Bookmark and Share

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office is using social media to warn home owners and residents about a trend that has been occurring in the county over the last several days.

Burglars are taking garage door openers from un-locked vehicles, opening the garage, and entering the homes of victims. Officials refer to this as the “door popper” trend.

They go on to say the crime has taken place many times while victims are sleeping. Not only do the suspects come into the home, but officials say they are “brazen” enough to enter bedrooms of the victims.

This type of crime is nothing new, but once again has become an issue.

The Sheriff’s Office urges residents to not leave their vehicles unlocked, leave valuables in the vehicle, leave garage door openers inside the vehicle or leave the door from the garage into your home unlocked at night.

The social media post asks home owners to use their alarm systems and report any unusual occurrences in your neighborhood.

The Sheriff’s Office is providing intensive residential patrols at night in an effort to prevent these types of crimes from occurring.

    Sounds like the women I date you make me drink and then they take advantage of me.

    The sheriffs office is one of the worse and unprofessional private debt collection firms I’ve had the misfortune to come across! Don’t use them!
    In my case they dragged their heels, lied and din’t get the job done. And no one took responsibility either.
    What a bunch of amateurs!They made such a mess that I suspect they might have even been paid off …
