Car Burglaries Increased in UP Last Year

University Park shared some its 2014 crime statistics this week, and there’s nothing too alarming, although there was a slight uptick in car burglaries last year within the UP boundaries.

According to UPPD, there were 106 car burglaries in the city in 2014, up from 93 the year before (but significantly lower than the 155 two years ago). It could be argued that if more people locked their cars or used common sense when securing their valuables, that wouldn’t happen. But that’s a discussion for another time.

Anyway, no robberies and 29 residential burglaries were included among the 24,106 calls for service. You can find more info and tips here.
