On 14 Jul 05 the parents of a fifteen year old Lower Salem resident reported when they confronted their son over his suspected use of narcotics or alcohol he became violent.

Today Detectives began an investigation into the thefts of items from homes on Sanjubar Drive and Sandhill Road in the Reno area between 10 pm last night and 6 am this morning. The homes were occupied by sleeping residents. Differing from past methods of only entering unlocked vehicles, the perpetrator(s) of the aforementioned thefts entered the former through an unlocked front door and the latter through an unlocked rear door. During the course of the crime on Sanjubar Drive, the suspect(s) stole a wallet, a purse, a sum of currency and a set of keys to a vehicle parked outside. The owner of the vehicle reported the van was entered though the suspect(s) left the keys on the floorboard of the vehicle and neglected to steal any items from inside. In the second of the two thefts the home’s resident reported the thieves stole a purse and its contents from atop the kitchen counter in her home.

As a matter safety and security Sheriff Larry Mincks recommends home and vehicle owners to lock their doors during the overnight hours and anytime when leaving their homes and vehicles unattended. If you have further information pertaining to these events please phone Detective Sergeant Brian Schuck of the Washington County Sheriff's Office’s at (740) 376-7070 ext. 21.
