This morning (Monday, February 27th), an alert Tamarac resident of The Heathgate – Sunflower community observed a suspect smash a window of their neighbor’s home.
The resident immediately called 911 & BSO Tamarac deputies quickly responded with K-9 & aviation. The suspect was located & arrested moments later.
Remember to always be a nosy neighbor when it comes to suspicious activity. Do not hesitate to dial 911. Crime is up in Broward County and these criminals are looking to get in and out of your home quickly.
Remember to ALWAYS answer your door or acknowledge you are home when someone comes to your door. Many times criminals will knock first to see if someone is home first before they go to the rear of the home and break in. Never ignore the door because you don’t want someone to think you are not home. This is a big mistake.
