Resident reports Suisun City burglary attempt

By From page A3 | February 01, 2013

SUISUN CITY — A resident in a home on the 500 block of Avalon Way heard someone kicking in the side door of the house Thursday, called police and ran outside.

Police arrived shortly after the 9:34 a.m. call, but found no one inside and nothing taken. They did not find a suspect in the neighborhood.

Sgt. Andrew White said that someone repeatedly rang the doorbell before kicking in the side door. Would-be burglars use this method to find out if someone is home, he said. White advised asking what the person wants but keeping the door shut.

There has been no string of burglaries in the area, White said.

Anyone with information related to Thursday’s incident is asked to call the Police Department at 421-7373.

    That's the typical modus operendi used--knock on the door and ask if Keniesha is home. Usually the creeps do this in pairs---once its determined nobody is home, one person continues to watch from the street while the other attempts entry through a side or back window or door. Despite continual denials and questionable reporting and statistical compilation, Suisun does have a crime and burglary issue. If the Suisun Police are using the reverse 911 system to notify residents of a crime spree in progress, then Sergeant White once again appears to be "testilying'' to the public in another attempt to create appearences that are not true and mendacious. In other words, there's a strong possibility your home will be burglarized in Suisun or Fairfield.
