Increase largely attributed to rise ill burglaries By ABE LEVY Staff City and county law enforcement officials report a slight increase in the number of report ed crimes last year as compared to 1995 The New Braunfels Police Department reports an increase of 12 percent in total reported crimes while the Comai County Sheriffs Office reports an increase of 6 percent Both city and county officials said the increase was largely because of burglaries which went up 21 percent during last year in the city with 841 incidents and 17 percent in the rest of the county with 354 incidents Reported burglaries include incidents where property is taken from residences commercial businesses storage warehouses and motor vehicles Authorities agree that the burglaries can be linked to increased population and a growing awareness about reporting crimes to police While the increase concerns us 1 think theres some positives in that they reflect an increase in the reporting of said Don Ferguson assistant to the city manager and a spokesman for the New Braunfels Police As people become more aware of crime theyre more apt to report it Without knowledge of the crime its very hard to solve Ferguson said burglaries of motor vehicles up 21 percent and nonhabitations up 36 percent which are attributed largely to bur glaries of storage facilities early in the year The city also saw a surge in the number of thefts that officials said are related to an increase in shoplifting incidents Ferguson said the increase is alarming but also reflects the higher number of retail stores in the area County officials said they arc still seeing the same trends each year that tend to influence the crime rate such as the increase in population throughout western Comal County and increased tourists during summer months County official said the major categories of crime that saw increases were reported sexual assaults by 38 percent and criminal homicide There were six criminal homicides in 1996 There were no criminal homicides in 1995 County officials said thefts were down by 4 percent and robberies went from one in 1995 to three this past year SUNDAY Vol 145 No 43 Scholarship celebrates
