Warm weather hazard: open garage doors

An open garage door in Sun City West

As the weather gets warmer, more residents leave their garage doors open for long periods of time. Often times residents forget they are open.

This is a prime opportunity for thieves to quickly get in and out.

In recent years golf clubs has been a primary target, along with tools.

When the Sheriff’s Posse of Sun City West patrolled the streets and saw a garage door open for a period of time the resident was notified.

The Posse has been in a shutdown mode since Jan. 25 so residents aren’t getting the official reminder from the patrols and need to pay closer attention to this problem.
