From the Pocomoke City Police Department
On Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at approximately 11:21 hours there were three (3) thefts from vehicles and a stolen vehicle reported in the Jenkins Orchard area of Pocomoke City. Pocomoke City Police will be stepping up enforcement daily in the area during the day and evening hours.
Jenkins Orchard is a quiet suburban residential community and residents may become complacent about car security. I encourage residents to make sure you do not leave your keys in the ignition, the vehicle running and to keep your vehicles locked at all times.
In addition, do not leave items such as; money, loose change, wallets, computers, headsets, etc. in plain view as these will be an enticement for a thief to enter your vehicle.
Often times, your homes’ exterior lighting may be too dim or not in use. Overly tall shrubbery and other brush on the premises can provide thieves with the necessary cover they need to steal.
Please stay vigilant for suspicious activity in your Community and notify the Pocomoke City Police Department of any suspicious activity.
