Residents of Ogden Park area worried about uptick in vehicle, home burglaries

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Residents living along Kodiak Street in Baton Rouge say they are concerned for their safety after a recent rash of burglaries in the area.

“I don’t know if it’s because I woke up so early, I was like man like am i still sleeping and it was a dream pretty much, so I walked back in and came back out and it was gone,” resident Khairy Henry tells WAFB.

Officials with the Baton Rouge Police Department (BRPD) say there has been an uptick in car and home burglaries in the city, partially due to the pandemic and also with the winter holidays approaching.

Police are warning residents to keep doors locked and valuables out of sight.

“We’re bringing awareness to the community so that they can prepare themselves in case they are potential victims of these supects who are out there burglarizing homes and vehicles,” says BRPD Sgt. L’Jean Mckneely.
