Are burglaries a symptom of summer?
SAN ANTONIO - Two break-ins in the same morning had neighbors in a far West side subdivision wondering if it would be a busy summer for burglaries.
Lisa Novosad, who heard a police helicopter circling overhead in the morning, said she suspects the break-ins are the work of idle high school kids with too much time on their hands.
“First day of summer, first break-in. It kind of goes hand in hand,” said Novosad.
Joe Sanchez, whose home was one of two that were broken into, said his wife came home from dropping their son off and heard a noise in the master bedroom. When she went to investigate, she found a broken window, and saw a young man walking away down the street.
Sanchez said the man was later arrested after he broke into another home a few blocks away.
San Antonio Police spokesman Ofc. Matt Porter said there is no statistical correlation between summer and an increase in burglaries, but urged homeowners to be mindful of home security nonetheless.
