Notice to residents

Fife Police Detectives have reported an increase in burglaries and attempted burglaries in the Valley Avenue area of town between 54th Ave E and 70th Ave E.   It appears that a suspect is targeting homes and apartments during daylight hours when residents are usually away at work or school.  A home owner recently encountered a masked suspect attempting to push open their front door.

Detectives are asking that residents take time to make sure that their homes are secured when they leave them unattended and to telephone the police department if they see any suspicious persons or activities in their neighborhood.   Also, if you should return to your residence and find that someone has broken into it, please try not to touch anything or begin to clean up until officers or detectives have had an opportunity to process the scene.  
Anyone with information regarding the recent break-ins is asked to call Detective Lieutenant Thompson at 253-896-8287.
