Property Crime Increase in West Eugene

EUGENE, Ore. — In the past month, a west Eugene neighborhood has experienced a spike in property crimes.

Police say these crimes include car break-ins, stolen vehicles, and residential and commercial burglaries.

In the past month, Eugene police report there have been 20 burglaries, four stolen cars and 12 car break-ins in an area of west Eugene. The neighborhood hit by these crimes lies between Barger, Roosevelt, North Terry and Highway 99.

EPD is urging anyone living within the perimeter to make sure to call police if they notice anything out of place in the neighborhood.

“If people’s cars are getting broken into and they’re not reporting them to us we can’t respond, we can’t be aware that we have a problem,” said Sgt. Lisa Barrong.

To help cut down on the crime in the neighborhood, EPD increased patrols.

People living in west Eugene say they’re hanging “beware of dog” signs and putting padlocks on fences to keep criminals away.

The Eugene Police Department is urging all residents to make sure all windows and doors are locked at all times.

    that is a lie, they don’t respond anyway.

    You know all this police talk is to scare us into voting for the lane county fee on the ballot. The area the police is talking about has always been an area for druggies and criminals.
