Burglary Alert: Police Warn U City, Clayton Residents

Police are investigating break-ins in both cities.

Burglary Alert: Police Warn U City, Clayton Residents

Police are alerting University City and Clayton residents to keep the doors to their homes locked and alarms activated.

Clayton Police officers caught Rodney Dunlap loading his vehicle with $4,600 worth of property from a home in the 8100 block of Westmoreland Avenue in Clayton.

Dunlap is charged with stealing and second degree burglary. University City Police officers told KMOV Dunlap is also being investigated for a similar crime in U City.

U City resident Francine Attoun told KMOV she didn't feel safe anymore. 

“We really don’t leave our house at night much even though we have an alarm system,” Attoun said. 

Police officers say there are a few easy ways to keep your home from becoming a target, especially during this holiday traveling season. They are:

  • Don’t post online that you’re going to be away 
  • Ask a neighbor to keep an eye on things 
  • Make sure your windows and doors are locked.
