The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is investigating multiple burglaries in the Apple Valley area. Over the last few days at least four homes have been entered. Several of the homes were also vandalized by the suspects. Officers have taken additional reports of items being stolen from vehicles.

Confidential tips and information for investigators can be left on the crime line at 740-399-3959.

According to police reports, on December 23, a resident of the 400 block of Lakeview Heights Dr. reported a break-in of his unlocked vehicle sometime between 10 PM December 22 and 2:30 PM December 23. the victim reported a firearm and sunglasses stolen.

It is unknown if all recent burglaries are related. Some police reports are not yet available due to the New Year's Day holiday. is offering the following tips to residents to help prevent break-ins:

-Always lock doors on all homes, garages, outbuildings, and vehicles. Use deadbolts. Burglars tend to steal from locations which they can get into and out of quickly and easily.

-Do not leave windows or sunroofs open.

-Do not leave keys in your vehicle.

-Do not leave any valuables, such as money, electronics, or jewelry in sight.

-Make your home look occupied when away. Place your lights on a timer. Do not allow mail or newspaper deliveries to pile up when you are away.

-Light up the outside. Burglars generally do not target homes where they could easily be seen. Place lights outside near your home. Trim any bushes or other shrubbery. Do not provide any areas where a burglar could hide.

-Get to know your neighbors. Establish trust. If they know your habits and are friendly with you, they will be more likely to call for help if something looks amiss.

-Photograph and record serial numbers of all valuables. If possible, engrave your driver's license number on them.

-Install an alarm system. Arm it at any time when you are not home.

A phone call to a powerless cop takes minutes. Pulling the trigger takes seconds.
