This did NOT happen in Brigden Ranch, but nearby. We should be vigilant.
A burglary occurred in the 2200 block of Dudley, south of BR, this week.
Someone entered the garage around 7-9 a.m. They took things, then entered the house. They took jewelry and a laptop.
What makes this dangerous is that the burglar(s) was/were there while a child was at home asleep after the owner had gone to work.
Our belief is that the burglar was someone with knowledge of the family’s pattern in the morning. The mother had left for work and their usual time, and the child normally wouldn’t have been home, but had a late school start that day.
The other point, that should be a lesson to all of us, is that the homeowner always leaves their house unlocked. The burglar(s) may have known this.
Many of us have lived in Brigden Ranch for decades. It has always been, and continues to be, a safe neighborhood. But we should all take precautions to ensure the safety of our homes, our belongings, and our family.
Please check our website from time to time to learn more about what’s happening in Brigden Ranch. And please ask your neighbors to send us their email address so we can keep them posted.
This last point is particularly important because several of the addresses on our list are being returned as undeliverable. We know some of these folks are still around, but maybe they’ve changed their email address.
Have a great weekend.
