Urgent Crime Bulletin: We are currently dealing with a serial residential burglary spree that has spanned the last several weeks. Thus far, the burglaries have been occurring on the north end of town, but we cannot assume that this criminal activity is confined to any particular area of town. A special investigative task force has been formed to deal with this case. We are asking the public to be vigilant for suspicious characters and vehicles in their neighborhoods, especially after dark.
Regardless of the circumstances, it’s always important to keep your residence secure against potential crime. Keep your doors locked and deadbolted when you leave and before going to bed at night, and don’t forget to lock your windows as well! Security lighting and standard outdoor lighting are very effective deterrents against potential crime. Do not leave valuables (laptops, money, jewelry, small electronics, etc.) visible from outside windows. These items could give a potential burglar more incentive to break into your home. Consider keeping valuables hidden in a closet or locked in a safe.
It’s a good idea to keep an inventory log of your valuables, both for crime prevention and insurance purposes. Document serial numbers of all electronics in your home. Photograph jewelry and other items of value so they can be easily identified.
Hopefully these reminders will help keep your residence safe! Please call EPD with any information about these cases, or Hardin County Crimestoppers at 800-597-8123.

I don't think they want to come to my house, they might not come out the same way they came in 😎

What are you considering the North end of Etown? We are by the Pine Valley Golf Course area

I have american bully pups avaliable if anyone needs a good family/guard dog to bring into your family 🙂 very good protection dogs 🙂

We live off of ring road, behind wal mart area. This area is being hit hard. We got hit Sat night....while we were asleep, with 2 young kids!! You think it wont happen to you, in your neighborhood, or that u will hear them...not true. We were prepared for a robber and we WISH we would have heard him/her/them because they would not be walking right now! Not sure but think they may live close as its suspected they might b on foot. If suspicious cars or people, CALL, do SOMETHING other than ignore it. I sure hope they are caught or karma gets them first! But thanks 2 the EPD for their vigilance and swiftness! Keep up the good work & go get'em!

Please give the community a general area! Yes, we all need to be on alert, but even more so if we are in the specific area

Had a suspicious guy around my house two weeks ago at night driving a blue 2008 Mitsubishi Galant with a couple bumper stickers on it. The car came back two days later during the day and he came back on my property again and near the window of my house and seemed to be investigating the window. Don't know if it's related or not, but it's possible.

I'm not very directional. What is the north side?

Are yall allowed to specify what particular neighborhood? I'm worried about my grandparents.

A bit more details word be nice. Night break-ins or daytime N end is a start.. NW or NE?

My husbands work bag got taken out of his car.. we are by TK..He didn’t lock his car 🤦🏻‍♀️

Noticed a pickup tonight just cruising around our subdivision. He was like driving down and around all side street around 1030 pm.

Thank you sirs for what you do for us and the timely information.

Is there any update about this? This is really making it hard to sleep at night.

Thank you for your continued efforts with stellar communication! That's what makes this community such a great place to live and work. Ik sure you will catch the bad guys soon. Stay safe.

Good grief what is the deal these days got drug busts and illegal weapons confiscated and homicides bricks being tossed at vehicles people planting skimmers on atms. Crime getting really bad but truly thank our men and women and even k-9 for doing their best to keep our community safe.

I hate the fact that we live in a society today where everything has to be "bolted, tied, locked down and hidden" to prevent crime. Can't have anything nice anymore.

I lock my doors even during the day when im home alone!!

Want to thank the Elizabethtown police department and the officers who assisted in the return of our vehicle after it was stolen this morning. The police had already responded to call of buglery and were tracking the individual. Unfortunately they got away but had enough fear of the efforts law enforcement were using in their persuit that they abruptly ditched our vehicle before any damage was done. Please all be aware of your surroundings and remember that we do have a very efficient law enforcement agency in Elizabeth town doing their very best to protect and to serve.

Thank you for letting us know. If this keeps happening someone will get shot from scaring someone I think most homeowners in our area are armed

sounds like your looking for teenagers that live in or near this nabor hood . that don't have a car and live close enough to crimes to not be out long enough to be seen . At night so easy to see head lights comming plenty of time for them to hide . Need officers on bikes in that naborhood. Just my opinion.

Security system! Dogs! Lock cars and doors. Lots of exterior lights. Security cameras.

See something, say something. Not just for the kids at schools, but adults in OUR neighborhoods also.

Are they entering through unlocked doors and windows, or breaking windows and doors? We had someone steal a GPS and toolbox out of our garage last year, when we left our garage door up, a foolish mistake which we had not done before.

Thank you so much for keeping us informed.

Thank you for sharing this information! Now if people would get jobs and earn money the lawful way they could get the stuff they want!

My how fancy you both look! 😁

I saw that picture being taken. Now I'm sad I didn't know what it was for.

Thank you Jesus for our police force.
