East Side Targeted by Burglars

Josh Farley has a story Thursday illustrating how many burglaries occurred in 2007 in East Bremerton businesses.

“We haven’t had a rash of burglaries like this since 2003 or 2004,” said Bremerton Detective Sgt. Kevin Crane.

More than the loss of money and things, a burglary leaves the victim with a sense of being invaded. When it happens more than once, it leaves business owners wondering when the next one will happen.

One burglary could be an anomaly, but two puts you on edge, said Rafael Brambila, Taqueria’s owner.

“The most frustrating part is you never know if you’re going to get robbed again tomorrow or the next day, or if it’s going to be someone else,” he said.

  1. I’m curious to know why the cameras don’t work?

    The business owners could also get together and set up enough hidden cameras to cover the parking spaces as well as catch sight of the burglary criminals going in and out of each business.

    Why not set up ‘hot’ buttons here and there within the store to be pushed to ring a silent alarm to 911 if the store is open during the robbery?

    Do the business owners have security people checking the businesses on random patrols?

    Or have loud or silent alarms set up to go off whenever a door or window is breeched after hours?
