Burglars hitting upscale Riverside neighborhood
By Brian Rokos
Riverside police have made arrests and are continuing to investigate a series of burglaries in the area of Overlook Parkway, a hilly neighborhood with large homes, many featuring swimming pools and tennis courts.
A few different burglary teams are believed to be responsible for the crimes that have been most prevalent since May, Officer Ryan Railsback said. The burglars sometimes knock on front doors and invent reasons why they are in the neighborhood if someone answers. If no one appears to be home, they force entry in backyards.
Railsback suggested installing alarms and security cameras if possible to help deter and solve burglaries.
“Those help tremendously,” he said.
