Citrus County Sheriff reporting increase in Daytime Burlgaries

Home Invasion in Citrus County

Home Invasions

This warning was posted on Facebook from the Citrus County Sheriffs office

BEWARE OF RESIDENTIAL BURLGARIES: Over the past few weeks our county along with surrounding counties like Marion and Levy, have been experiencing a series of residential daytime burglaries. Doors have been forced open, and jewelry, medicine and handguns have been taken. Please secure your valuables, and report any suspicious persons who may knock on your door “looking for someone” who does not reside there, or solicitors without marked vehicles with company identification. In addition, report any suspicious vehicles in your neighborhood to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office. All of these incidents have been occurring during the daytime hours so please make sure you watch out for your neighbors’ homes if they are away. If you have any questions you can contact Detective Serocki at 352-422-0518. Thank you.
