BAKERSFIRLED, Calif. - Bakersfield police say daytime home burglaries are on the rise in Kern County.
BPD says thieves are mostly targeting homes that are empty during the day rather than at night, but police also say if you work during the day and live in a neighborhood use power in numbers.
A stay at home neighbor could be one of your best alarm systems.
Sergeant Joe Grubbs said that most of the arrests are made be neighbors calling and saying something is not normal.
Another safety suggestion would be to have a loud alarm system that wold sound off if triggered by an intruder.
