FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — Police in Fishers are warning residents to lock their doors. This comes after several apartment break-ins in town.

On Monday afternoon, police responded to five burglaries in three different apartment complexes. In those cases, police say the suspects got in the apartments by forcing their way through an exterior door. The suspects took jewelry, wallets and purses.

Those break-ins happened at the Sandcreek, Deerbrook and at Sunblest Apartments. Police only have a vague description of the suspects.

According to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, a slew of break-ins are being investigated in the city. IMPD issued several messages recently to residents in Indianapolis to be more watchful.

The messages encouraged residents to remain vigilant and alert especially during this time of year.

Typically the holiday season is counted on as being the most wonderful time of the year, but during the joyful season police see break-ins rise.

Some home safety tips include, installing exterior lights at all entrances, using motion detectors lights, checking who is at the door before opening, making sure doors and windows are locked and leaving lights on when not at home has also been known to deter suspects.

Police add if you note anything suspicious or out of the ordinary to call 911, immediately.

” If you see something you got to say something that’s the way these people will get caught,” said Fisher Police Sgt. Tom Weger.

Anyone with information on these crimes are urged to call the Fishers Police Department at 317.595.3300.
