Exercise extra security if you live in a residence with a sliding glass door or ground level window

On 10-26-16 at about 10:20 PM WSU PD responded to a burglary at Nez Perce Village complex.  The investigation showed the suspect entered the apartment through a locked sliding glass door and took a wallet.  There are no suspects at this time.

As a safety precaution, if you live in a residence with a sliding glass door or ground level window, it is a good idea to place a wooden dowel or similar item in the sliding glass door or window track for an additional layer of security.
