Quincy, FL -- October 14, 2011 --

Acting on information provided by witnesses Quincy Police have been able to make two arrests in several recent residential burglaries. Both teens were arrested after a vehicle used to transport stolen property was seen by a witness and tracked to the Gadsden Arms Apartments in Quincy. A search of an associated apartment revealed much of the property taken from burglaries which occurred on Shelfer and Cooper Streets in Quincy. Flat screen TVs were primary targets for the burglars as well as Nintendo games and clothes.

Both juveniles are 16 years of age and residents of Quincy. Both are being held and were transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC) in Tallahassee. The names of the juveniles are being withheld at this time.

The Quincy Police Department offers the following tips to citizens to reduce the chances of being victimized:

1. Make your home look occupied

2. Lock all doors when you go out even if for a short time

3. Leave lights on at night when you go out

4. Keep your garage door closed and locked

5. If going on vacation stop delivery of mail and newspapers

6. Arrange for your lawn to be mowed if you will be away for an extended time

7. Install deadbolt locks on all your outside doors

In citizens have additional questions they can contact the Quincy Police Department. They can also arrange for a residential crime prevention survey by calling 627-7111.

    QPD has high turnover of good officers. Used to patrol with 4 to 5/shift, now down to just 3. Also, using private service to wash cars at taxpayer expense while taxes went up. The GCSO deputy car parked next to QPD is washed by inmate labor. Thanks Walt and Jack.

    Rodger don't get too excited Quincy's new Chief will show you all kinds of magic but when he leaves someone has to clean his messes. Look at the places he has been.

    8. Install video security system. 9. Install fencing and no trespassing sign. 10. Stick NRA sticker on front window and verbage from Castle Doctrine (hopefully they are smart enough to catch on). 11. Booby traps (not ones that kill, ones that just break bones) inside fenced front yard (see 9)and finally...12. Put meanest baddest dog in the world that will eat the guts out of anything in fenced front yard. Unintended consequences....your neighbors will hate you because they are now the targets.
