    If you're out for the evening:
    Turn on lights and a radio or TV so it looks like someone's home.
    Be extra cautious about locking doors and windows when you leave, even if it's just for a few minutes.
    Don't display gifts where they can be seen from outside.

    If you're shopping:
    Stay alert and be aware of what's going on around you.
    Park in a well-lighted space and be sure to lock the car, close the windows, and hide shopping bags and gifts in the trunk.

    San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the Vista Sheriff's Station are asking for the public's help to identify and locate three unknown suspects wanted in connection with a burglary that occurred in the unincorporated area of Vista. On April 25, 2018, at about 4:40 p.m., three Black males burglarized a house in the 1000 block of Sugarbush Drive in unincorporated Vista.

    The suspects arrived at the residence about 20 minutes after the homeowner left. The suspects pulled into the driveway and Suspect #1 exited the vehicle and knocked on the front door.
