The City of Bradford Police Department is issuing a safety warning to the resident of the area. We are asking residents to keep their doors locked to their homes, even when they are home.

Over the past two weeks we have had six separate incidents of an unknown person(s) entering homes and removing wallets or purses. The incidents to date have been focused on the East side of town in the East Main Street, Cornen ST, and East Ave areas.

I find these most recent incidents even more alarming than a typical theft as the actor does not seem to care whether or not the residents are home. Of the six recent incidents five of them have been while the victims were home.

We would like to remind residents that in today’s world you have to take the precautions to protect ourselves. Locking your homes, and cars, as well as turning on outside lighting can act as a deterrent to the people commit these types of crimes.

I would also like to encourage any residents of the City, especially the areas currently being affected that may have private surveillance systems to contact us to see if they may be of any use in the investigation.

If anyone has any information in regards to these recent burglaries or have video footage, please contact our Department 814-368-6133 ext 232 or county dispatch at 814-887-4911 or email;

Chief Christopher Lucco
