Palm Beach County storage units are being burglarized

PALM BEACH COUNTY — Since February 2017, public storage facilities throughout Palm Beach County have been hit with a few hundred burglaries to their storage units.

The unknown suspect’s motive of operandi is to burglarize facilities with indoor storage units and strike between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. The suspects could spend up to hours at these storage units burglarizing one after the other.

PBSO urges the community to be Viligant! Choose a public storage facility with adequate working cameras. DO NOT leave valuables in these storage unit(s) such as: jewelry, weapons, ammunition, high value items (this information should be documented in the contract). Make sure the storage facility has proper security features in place and security gates. Also you are urged to purchase a round lock, which has no locking mechanism, to prevent the lock from being cut.

The suspects pictured below recently burglarized the indoor storage facilities located on the 4200 block of Okeechobee Blvd, West Palm Beach.
