Hamilton Police Chief: Burglaries level off

Hamilton Township Police Chief James Collins

Hamilton Police Chief James Collins said that, after the township saw a higher number of burglaries through July (a total of 279 burglaries in 2012 as compared to 267 last year) the number has since leveled off.

Through the end of August, Collins said Hamilton has reports of 322 burglaries this year, the same as through last August. In 2011, the township had 513 burglaries, he said. In 2010 he said there were 434.

The numbers became an issue at a community meeting last week to address a spike in burglaries in the Golden Crest neighborhood of the township.

"It's not the best, it's not the worst, but it's not good," he said at the time.

No word yet on the rash of burglaries in Golden Crest, though at last report it was 24.
