Police say one of the first steps to make your house less attractive to a burglar is to harden the target. This can be done by leaving outdoor lights on, having motion detector lights around your outside doors, having solid core doors and heavy-duty locks.
Police encourage the use of a secondary blocking device on patio doors. Also, don't forget to close and lock your garage door at night and check your doors at night before you go to sleep. If you have valuables in your garage make sure they are not visible through a garage window. Lock your vehicle and don't leave valuables inside.
Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to call the Green Bay Police Department at (920) 448-3208 or call Crime Stoppers at (920) 432-STOP.
