Columbia Police stop burglary in progress, make arrests
Two white males in 20s arrested inside Burkesville Street home. Police warn residents that several burglaries remain unsolved, issue tips for prevention of thefts from homes and vehicles and, in some cases vehicles themselves.
Note: An individual charged by police or in a warrant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.
By Ofc. Josh Brockman Public Information Officer
Columbia Police Department, Chief Jason Cross

Officers observed two white males in the residence and were able to make entry into the residence and take them into custody. Arrested was :
CPD ask residents to lock up doors when away
Columbia Police would like to remind everyone to lock the doors to their house and vehicles when not in them. We have been experiencing a high volume of thefts especially in the residential neighborhoods inside the city limits.BR>
Multiple vehicles have been broken into and items such as purses, electronics, sunglasses, money, and in several cases, the vehicles themselves have been taken.
Most of these break-ins have involved no forced entry, the perpetrator or perpetrators simply opened the door.
Although several of these cases have resulted in the arrest of the perpetrators, a few break-ins remain unsolved.
We ask that you remain observant to your surroundings.
Watch your neighbors property and ask them to watch yours.
If you see anything that looks suspicious, call 911 and ask for an officer to be sent to your location to check it.
