The Fort Myers Police Department is asking the community for help in preventing burglaries in the City. Recently, police have noticed a trend in vehicle burglaries in the City’s west district. The crimes are occurring during the overnight hours. In most cases, the vehicles have been unlocked and the thieves simply helped themselves to items such as purses, wallets, cell phones, computers and GPS systems that were left in plain sight. In a few cases, the thieves have smashed windows to obtain the items. FMPD asks that all residents remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity immediately. Police offer the following tips:
The photos attached are from a home surveillance system.

Tipsters can remain anonymous. Again, police remind citizens to lock your doors, take the keys and don’t leave valuables in plain sight.
