"Rules to Live By" from Lt. Scott Timmons, LRPD

From Lt. Scott Timmons, LRPD:

It's been a while since I sent out one of these, so I'd thought I'd bring you up to date. This is intended for residents of the Northwest Division of the Little Rock Police Department.

We graduated a class of eighteen (18) police recruits last Friday. These folks are now on the street and beginning to learn the practical applications of the job. These people will be in a Field Training Program for a minimum of twelve weeks before being released to work alone. We anticipate that they will help to fill some of the openings the Police Department has.  I believe that another class is planned to begin in the summer.

Northwest Detectives recovered five stolen ATV's along with several trailers and some hunting equipment on Friday. The items had been stolen within the last month in the Northwest Division. In some cases, these trailers and ATV's had coupler locks and or chains or cables securing them. The thieves were able to defeat these security measures and make off with the items. The total value of recovered property was in excess of $50,000. All of the seized property has been returned to its owners.

Some things to be learned from this: these items were in the carport or yards of the victims and were visible from the street. The bad guys drove up late at night, cut the items free, hooked them up to tow vehicles and drove away. In some cases the thefts only took a minute or two before they were clear of the residence. In other cases, the thieves started the ATV or UTV (side by side) with a sharp object stuck in the ignition and then drove away.

               My suggestions are:
1.  Keep trailers, ATV's, boats, campers, tractors, etc., out of sight as best you can. Don't leave it in the driveway overnight because you are going to clean it tomorrow. If possible, block the item in as well as chaining it with the heaviest chain and padlock you can find.

2.  Keep the registration and serial numbers for these items separate from the item itself. That way, if it's stolen you can give us a make, model and serial number giving us a chance to get it back for you. Also, take pictures of your items and keep them. One of the UTV's we recovered had all of it's serial numbers removed along with other identifying stickers. We were able to identify it though after-market modifications the victim had done to it, plus some personal touches.

3. Take any loose items inside for storage to reduce the potential for loss.

4. Some of the ATV's were strapped down on trailers. In some cases they hooked up and took the whole package, trailers and ATV's. In other cases they cut the tie down straps and pushed or drove the ATV's off the trailer. Secure accordingly.

On a separate note, cold weather will be back later this week according to the TV weatherman. Please don't let your car warm up in the driveway unattended on those frosty mornings! Every cold snap we have four to six cars stolen as they are warming up. We recovered two stolen in this manner last week. They had been used in other crimes and were in pretty poor condition. If you must warm up your car without you in it, at least watch it from your front door so you can describe the person that drove away in it!!
