Last week on this blog I told you about a spike in home burglaries near Webb Chapel and Northwest Highway. Now it seems that burglary rash has started to spread to the nearby Sparkman neighborhood.  According to a crime alert sent out by the Sparkman HOA, there have been a handful of home burglaries—the most recent a few days ago.

Most of these incidents happened during workday hours. The suspect is a male 15 to 22 years old, and according to police, he typically knocks on the front door and if nobody answers, he breaks in through the back of the house.

If any neighbors have information about the recent home burglaries, they’re asked to call the Northwest Division at 214.670.6178.
