Four Burglaries in a Week in Deer Park

Two more recent burglaries have been reported in Deer Park with the latest two occurring on the same day, according to police. 

On Feb. 4, police say someone broke into a home on W. 18th Street through a window and stole a TV, table, iPod and jewelry. 

Also on Feb. 4, someone broke a glass door at Jade Exterior Cleaning on Brandywine Drive and stole a lockbox and cash, police said. 

In the week prior, there were also two residential burglaries in Deer Park.

On Jan. 27, a burglar broke into a home on Lake Avenue through an unlocked rear window. Jewelry and a tablet were stolen from the home, police said.

On Jan. 30, a burglar broke into an unlocked trailer being used as a residence on a property on Bay Shore Road. Jewelry was reported stolen. 

There was a rash of burglaries in Deer Park in the fall, but until recently, it had been relatively quiet on that front.

I have lived in DP for most of my life. It has gone so far down hill in the last 5 or so. So many robberies that I no longer feel safe here. Lets not mention the way people are driving through stop signs etc. I use to feel proud saying I live here. But now, people just look down when I say I am from DP. I should have sold years ago like the smart ones did! I have a feeling it will only get much worse shortly.

Ughhh its not your neighbors robbing houses. Its outsiders coming in and leaving. Deer Park is fine, just have to keep eyes and ears open.

There is a heroin issue going on with many young kids. Lock your doors and windows it doesnt get any simpler. The neighborhood is fine.

We should start a Blog where we can post information regarding descriptions about crimes in our neighborhood. Last night I caught someone walking up my driveway around 310am with a pry bar. I alerted him of me seeing him and he fled in a late model white ford pick up with extended cab or 4 dr. I live near May moore elementary

Joe C has it right. there should be a blog so people in the neighborhood are kept up with whats going on. I live near May Moore myself. A couple of years ago, I had would be intruders walking on my roof to get in my upper windows (BROAD DAYLIGHT). they failed to get in after slitting the screens and not being able to break the locks , but did get in my neighbors house.

There are drugs in DP, just like there are in other areas, saying it is for low class people is plain ignorant as that is simply not the case. FYI, "nobody see nothing"? makes no sense.
