Burglar's Using Garage Door Openers to Enter Homes

It's quick, it's convenient, but it also makes you and your home an easy target for crooks.  Leaving your garage door opener in plain site equals easy access into your garage and even home, if a crook decides to take advantage.

Well it happened this weekend, as three men targeted a few homes off of Rustic Manor stealing property from inside the garages. Police say they looked for cars with garage door openers in plain site and broke into the vehicles to get them. In one burglary, the door leading into the home, from the garage, was unlocked.

Once in the home, police say the men took a set of keys and stole the vehicle that was parked in the driveway. That's what ultimately lead police to the three men. The stolen vehicle was located at a residence on the other side of the city near the airport that the men shared.

Police did find other stolen items inside the home and arrested the men. Two of the suspects are illegal immigrants and Border Patrol has put detainers on those two suspects.
