They are asking the community to discretely photograph the license plates of vehicles you see as suspicious or unusual in an attempt to reveal the identity of the burglary suspects.
“Please send any photos you take to me via e-mail and I will get it to detectives,” Moore said. “And please avoid any confrontations. I would also like any footage of suspicious persons caught on any home video (ring.com, etc.)”
Moore also alerted the community that he has a new email and if you are no longer getting alerts from him, your address may have been lost in the switch over. Please email him at email@example.com.
