Recently, several burglaries have occurred in apartment complexes throughout the city. There is no suspect information available however, here is some information regarding the recent burglaries:
- Entry has been through open and/or unlocked patio doors.
- Burglaries have been reported occurring in the daytime and overnight hours.
- Burglaries have been in occupied and unoccupied first floor apartments.
- Stolen items have included laptop computers, cell phones, electronics and other small, easy to remove items.
- Lock all doors and windows. Double check your locks before you leave home. Utilize a Charlie Bar, rod or other object to prevent manipulation of patio doors.
- Do not leave valuables unsecured. Keep them in a safe anchored to the floor, if possible. If management/tenants cannot utilize a safe, store your valuables in a hidden/hard to find place. Do not leave the above stated stolen items out in plain sight during an extended absence.
- Apartment property managers/owners leaving notices for tenants should slide them completely under the door so they are not visible to persons walking by in hallways. Do not leave them attached to apartment entry door or in door jambs.
- Apartment property managers/owners should check lighting and overall security of the property. For a premise survey of your property, contact Community Outreach Officer Ken Sysko at (952) 924-2661.
- Apartment property managers/owners should establish an apartment monitoring program for tenants who will be away for an extended period of time. Have them inform you if anyone has access to the apartment during their absence.
- Call 911 or (952) 924-2618 (non-emergency)
- Talk with your tenants/neighbors regarding all suspicious activity.

The St. Louis Park Police Department wants residents to be aware of various scams that are designed to swindle money and/or personal information. These can include lottery scams — in which people receive phony notices indicating they have won a sum of money — or other similar scam letters, which are often sent by email.
- Do your homework when hiring a contractor, auto repair shop or other service in or out of the home. Contact the Better Business Bureau for information and ask for references from the company or facility representative.
- Talk with family, friends and neighbors on who they may recommend for your specific need. Past experience shows this is a good way to locate a reputable contractor and/or repair facility.
- Retain trusted contractor and/or repair facility information for future reference.
- Be aware of door-to-door solicitors and contractors/handymen selling their services. Some may be legit; others may not. Solicitors need to obtain a license to sell door-to-door in St. Louis Park.
- If unsure about recommended work, get a second opinion from another contractor and/or repair facility — you have that right as a consumer.
- Read through contracts and have the person you are dealing with explain it thoroughly if you do not understand it before signing.
- Never give cash as a down payment or to pay for the completed work. Paying by check or credit card will give you a running record of payment. Be wary of companies who do not accept anything for payment but cash.
- Visit the MN State Attorney General’s Office website and the MN Department of Public Safety website for further information on lottery scams.
- Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
