Vehicle burglaries on rise in Sugarmill Woods

Vehicle burglaries are on the rise in Sugarmill Woods. The Sheriff's Office says residents should lock their doors and remove valuable items, too.

The Citrus County Sheriff's Office's Westside patrol units worked six vehicle burglaries on Wednesday night in the Sugarmill Woods area -- more specifically, on Dogwood Drive and Golfview Court.

The Sheriff's Office reminds residents that while the neighborhood sleeps, the suspects have been walking from house to house checking door handles and looking inside vehicles for any valuables that are in plain view.

The Sheriff's Office asks residents to not be an easy target, and to remember to take valuables out of their cars -- and to lock their doors.
