The Miller County Sheriff’s Department is putting residents in the Brumley and Iberia areas on alert after several forced entry burglaries have been reported, most of them happening during the daytime hours. Sheriff Louie Gregoire says, more than likely, the suspect or suspects are probably familiar with the areas and not just randomly picking their targets.
The Sheriff is encouraging residents to be more vigilant and keep an eye out for anything unusual in their neighborhoods.
The break-ins are generally happening sometime between 8am and 4pm. Sheriff Gregoire also says other ways to minimize your chances of becoming a victim include installing surveillance cameras and/or house alarms.
