If you live in Loveland and have a garage, you might want to take some extra precautions as there have been a string of recent burglaries in the city.

The bulletin was sent out over Facebook:

The above states to keep your garage and the door locked. Also I found out another helpful hint when I was speaking with my home inspector earlier this year. If you have a garage, make sure you snip off the plastic red handle that can override your motor on your garage door. The red handle can be used as leverage to unhinge your mechanism from your garage door track from the outside. The best thing to do is cut the plastic handle off and put a tiny knot at the end to deter fraying of the rope.

If you see anything suspicious, you are encouraged to call the Loveland Police Department at 970-667-2151 or if it is an emergency, call 911.
