Not all of the November cases included estimates of the property or cash taken. Of those that did, $790,270.59 in property and $10,976 in cash (for a total of $801,246.59) was reported as stolen.
That is nearly double the $404,016.50 reported in October; however, the figures are inflated by two cases: One of which a woman said nearly $270,000 worth of valuables were taken from her home while she was in jail, and another in which $200,000 in property was reported taken during the burglary of a jewelry store.
Excluding those outliers, the monthly property and cash reported taken in November's burglaries would have totaled $332,394.59.
In September, when 242 residential burglaries and 23 commercial burglaries were reported, a total of $374,886.36 was estimated as taken. In August, when 247 residential burglaries and 43 commercial burglaries were reported, a total of $488,483.22 in property and cash was estimated as stolen.
The 72209 zip code had the most burglaries with 65 in the November period, followed by 72204 with 47 and 72205 with 34.
