Burglars strike home on 73rd Terrace

Burglaries in Prairie Village have tapered off significantly from a year ago, but that doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods.

A reader sent us a note last night letting us know that her home on 73rd Terrace west of Mission Road had been burglarized while she and her family were out for a short while Monday morning. After speaking to some neighbors, she learned that a woman on 73rd Street heard someone knocking on her door yesterday as well, and the person was very surprised when someone actually answered.

So, remember to keep those doors locked, try to keep valuable items out of the line of sight from the street, and record the serial numbers on your electronics and other attractive-to-burglars property so if they’re stolen, the police will be able to identify them if they’re recovered.
