Winchester police warn residents to keep doors locked


The Winchester Police Department will be contacting residents in various areas of the city to warn them to keep their doors locked. This is a result of a suspect (see police sketch at right) who has walked into unlocked homes and taken items in plain view while the residents were home.

The suspect is described as a black man about 5'9" to 5'11" with a thin to medium build.

"With the Apple Blossom Festival approaching, the police department urges the public to keep their residences locked even when home. If you encounter the suspect, please do not approach him, contact 911 immediately," states a press release issued today.

Contact Crime Solvers at (540) 722-5200 or the Winchester Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at (540) 545-4704 if you have any information about these larcenies. Anyone who encounters the suspect is asked to contact 911 immediately.
