During the past week, Highland Village Police have taken five reports of stolen lawn mowers, chainsaws, weedeaters, blowers and related equipment in the area of Baird Circle, Desiree Lane and Gayle Lane, east of Highland Village Road.
All of the items stolen have been from unlocked storage sheds or detached garages adjacent to the homes. Police believe the thefts may have occurred during the same episode last week.
Residents are reminded to close and lock their storage sheds and garages. As with all valuables, record the make, model and serial number, or register them online.
Police urge residents to install good exterior security lighting and consider a security camera system. For those who have a camera system, HVPD suggests joining their Neighborhood Video Partner program.
