Break in’s & unliscensed solicitors in Rancho Vejio neighborhood Thursday, May 31 2012 

A resident in Windmill Ridge reports several auto break-ins that happened last night.  This information is being added to a report at the Sherrif’s Department from last weekend where another auto break-in occurred , with substantial loss, on Chili Line in Windmill Ridge.

Also recdeived were several emails yesterday and another one this morning (I have included it below) about a lot of suspicious activity associated with door-to-door solicitors trying to sell cleaning products.  Several  residents have had conversations with the Sheriff’s Department and have been warned that this type of activity could very possibly be linked to the auto and home break-ins that are starting up again!!!
PLEASE be on ALERT for any suspicious activity going on around your neighborhoods and report it to the Sheriff’s Dept.  (438-3720 ) , LOCK your cars, and tell the door-to-door solicitors that you ARE calling the Sheriff. 
Please pass this information on to your neighbors if they are not receiving Neighborhood Watch ALERTS.  Remember, “A well informed neighborhood is a safe neighborhood”…..thanks everyone for all your emails and support……stay safe!
As you all know the door-to-door solicitors seem to be in town.  They MUST HAVE a City of Santa Fe Business license to be conducting business within the city limits.  We strongly suggest that if any solicitors come to your house and they don’t appear to be legitimate (have no business license, materials, cards, etc.), or just seem suspicious in any way call the Santa Fe Police Dispatch at (505)428-3710 immediately and report them, make sure to include good descriptions (height, build, clothing description, race, etc.) and last know direction of travel.
A good idea that some neighborhood watchers have also brought up is to make an effort to pull your trash containers back up to your house on trash day because some watchers have observed people approaching houses that have the trash containers left out because they think these houses are unoccupied.  
Make sure to lock all of your doors and windows and do not forget to lock your vehicles and make sure that nothing of any value is left out in plain view.

 Make sure to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity, people, or cars (anything or anyone that just seems out of the norm) and report it to the Santa Fe Police by calling dispatch at (505)428-3710.
