PBSO: Warning About Public Storage Burglaries

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is warning people who rent public storage units to be vigilant after a few hundred burglaries have taken place at facilities throughout the county since February.  

The suspects are striking indoor storage units between midnight and 5 a.m., and going from one to the next for hours at a time.  

Investigators have released pictures of two people burglarizing units at Public Storage along Okeechobee Boulevard, just east of Military Trail.  

The Sheriff's Office says you should choose a storage facility with adequate working cameras, don't leave valuables like jewelry, weapons or ammunition in a storage unit.  

They also say you should make sure you choose a facility with proper security features in place and security gates and purchase a disc lock, or round lock that is designed in a way that it can't be reached by a bolt cutter.

Anyone with information about these burglaries is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS or you can remain ANONYMOUS by downloading our new app “CONNECT & PROTECT”, “See Something Say Something” for your Apple or Android Smart Phone.
