Text Box: Officer DeCarlo of the MCPD attended the March 31, 2005 HVCA Board of Directors meeting to discuss the recent burglaries in Olney and the surrounding areas.  The meeting was announced on the Neighborhood Network and was well attended by HVCA residents. 
The attendees were updated on the police efforts to apprehend the burglars and provided with information (to the extent possible on an active investigation) on some of the scenarios the police have faced in this investigation.  
Four HVCA homes were burglarized between December 2004 and February 2005.  Entry was gained Text Box: through sliding glass doors that were not fully secured or did not have additional protection (such as Charlie bars, screws in the top track or added locks) to prevent easy removal of the sliding door.  Around two dozen homes in the Olney area were burglarized during this period; fortunately, the burglaries appear to have subsided.  
However, now that warmer weather is here, Officer DeCarlo reminded owners to be vigilant in removing all items from their vehicles—if you don’t want to lose it, remove it!
A question and answer period ensued with some owners providing information Text Box: about security measures that they have taken or installed on their property.  
Officer DeCarlo left HVCA members with an excellent booklet published by the MCPD entitled “Burglary Prevention, Your Best Home Insurance”.  Your community manager has additional copies for the asking.    
If you have information that could assist MCPD in solving these burglaries, please contact MCPD at 301-279-8000.  Your name will be kept confidential upon request.
