P201402396 Larceny in the Third degree:  
On Wednesday, September 24, 2014 South Windsor Police arrested Wanda Burgos, age 38, of 67 Cooper St. Manchester, CT on an arrest warrant. She was charged with Larceny in the Third degree and was held on $40,000.00 surety bond.  Burgos was presented at Manchester Superior Court on Thursday, September 25, 2014.
Burgos’ charge stems from an August 2014 complaint by a local resident that $1900.00 in jewelry was missing from her home.  The woman suspected an acquaintance that cleaned her home had taken the items.  Investigators learned that the suspect had pawned jewelry in Chicopee, MA and East Hartford.  South Windsor detectives recovered some of the stolen jewelry and later obtained an arrest warrant for Burgos.

Cooper was later released on a $5000.00 non-surety bond and is scheduled to appear at Manchester Superior Court on October 9, 2014.
Cooper’s charges stem from a 2008 investigation in which he solicited a verbal agreement to pave a King Street resident’s driveway for $1300.00.  He completed half of the job, and then requested an additional $2000.00 to complete the work.  The investigating officer learned that Cooper completed the work without being registered/certified with the State of Connecticut. He also failed to provide the victim with a contract outlining her rights concerning the transaction.  An arrest warrant was later obtained but Cooper had left the state.  He was located by West Haven Police on Thursday evening and turned over to South Windsor Police and the warrant was served.

Start of School Year Traffic Enforcement (Summary):
The South Windsor Police Department Traffic Unit conducted focused education and enforcement efforts in the town’s 8 school zones from August 25th to September 2nd.  Traffic officers deployed radar speed signs and a radar speed trailer in 4 of the school zones. Message board signs were displayed in the area of police headquarters. Traffic Officers and Police Motorcycle Officers were deployed to the school zones during the high traffic volume hours of school opening and closing times. The results of the enforcement efforts were:
Total Traffic Stops: 115
Total Citations: 79 (Including 1 narcotics citation and 1 misdemeanor summons)
The top speed detected in a 25 mph school zone was 57 mph.

Officers from the Midnight Watch were diligent in having patrol officers monitor the high school area during the early morning hours, every morning, during this period.
During the enforcement period we did note a surprising lack of compliance in regards to seat belt usage. We would like to remind everyone of the importance of wearing seatbelts, their use is proven to reduce injury and save lives.
It is the sincere hope of the Traffic Unit that these efforts have influenced motorists to be more aware of safe operation of motor vehicles in our school zones. We will continue to monitor traffic in our school zones and the safe operation of vehicles in those areas.
It is the mission of the Traffic Unit to increase safety and reduce motor vehicle crashes on South Windsor roadways through engineering, education, and enforcement.

Residential Burglaries:
We had 3 reported today - 2 on Quarrybrook drive and one on Sally drive. Entry was gained by pushing in window air conditioners- presumably when people were not home because that's going to make significant noise. If you will be away on vacation, leave lights on and perhaps a tv or radio to give the appearance that someone is home. Don't let mail or papers accumulate outside your home.
Our investigators will be following up. As always, we urge anyone who sees suspicious activity, at any hour, to call dispatch immediately at 860-644-2551.
People with window air conditioners should heed manufacturers advice about securing window units.

Town of South Windsor to Bolster Fire Prevention Efforts with FM Global Grant:
SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn.—The Town of South Windsor has been selected to receive a $2,000 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers.   South Windsor’s application was selected from the hundreds of submissions to enhance fire prevention efforts.
FM Global representative Ted Pisciotta presented the award to Fire Marshal Walter Summers at the South Windsor Fire Headquarters at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.   The award will be used to assist with fire prevention activities in South Windsor, and to help educate the community and reduce the number of fires. The grant will allow the Fire Marshal Office to continue to purchase and distribute smoke alarms to community members at no charge.  The South Windsor Fire Marshal Office performs various duties, including inspections of various properties, fire cause and origin investigations, and fire safety education.
    The Fire Marshal’s office has partnered with the South Windsor Police to distribute smoke detectors at Car Seat clinics, and has visited local condominium complexes to distribute detectors and conduct fire safety education. Among the topics covered by the Fire Marshals and Fire Inspectors with citizens is:  smoke alarm age and placement, carbon monoxide alarms, home escape drills, and a home safety checklist.  The program has been an overwhelming success.
  The Fire Marshal Office has conducted over 1,500 apartment inspections over the last two years as part of a FEMA Grant.  The results of these inspections found that over 80% of the smoke alarms were either not present, or were over 15 years old and beyond their service life. Many of   the apartments also had no carbon monoxide alarms.

Because fire continues to be the leading cause of property damage worldwide, during the past 35 years FM Global has contributed millions of dollars in fire prevention grants to fire service organizations around the globe. Locally, the company has awarded grants to a number of Connecticut-based organizations.

 “At FM Global, we strongly believe the majority of property damage is preventable, not inevitable,” said Michael Spaziani, manager of the fire prevention grant program. “Far too often, inadequate budgets prevent those organizations working to prevent fire from being as proactive as they would like to be. With additional financial support, grant recipients are actively helping to improve property risk in the communities they serve.”

Through its Fire Prevention Grant Program, FM Global awards grants quarterly to fire departments—as well as national, state, regional, local and community organizations worldwide—that best demonstrate a need for funding, where dollars can have the most demonstrable impact on preventing fire, or mitigating the damage it can quickly cause.

Background:
To learn more about FM Global’s Fire Prevention Grant Program, or to apply for a grant, please visit www.fmglobal.com/grants

  For more than 175 years, many of the world’s largest organizations have turned to FM Global to develop cost-effective property insurance and engineering solutions to protect their business operations from fire, natural disasters and other types of property risk. With clients in more than 130 countries, FM Global ranks #541 among FORTUNE magazine’s largest companies in America and is rated A+ (Superior) by A.M. Best and AA (Very Strong) by Fitch Ratings. The company has been named “Best Property Insurer in the World” by Euromoney magazine, “Best Global Property Insurer” by Global Finance magazine and was voted “Best Commercial Property Insurer” in Business Insurance’s 2010 annual Readers Choice Awards.

P201402084 “Grandparent Scam”:
  The scam often referred to as the “Grandparent Scam” continues to be used both nationwide and locally.  The most recent occurrence was on Wednesday, July 9th when a local woman received a phone call from a male who said he was a Springfield police officer.  The male caller said he had the woman’s grandson in custody. The suspect directed the victim to obtain money order cards to for bail.  While at a local pharmacy the clerk warned the victim about such scams and the police were notified.  Officers determined that the grandson was not in custody and continue to investigate the incident.
  Citizens are advised to verify anything they are told over the phone and resist pressure to act quickly.  It’s a good practice to research the callback numbers for people presenting themselves as government officials, and never wire transfer money based on this type of call.
Anyone with questions about such suspicious phone calls should contact the police department for verification and assistance.
Additional information is available on the FBI webpage, http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2012/april/grandparent_040212

P201401164 Fraud “IRS Scam”:
The fraudulent activity known as the “IRS Scam” continues to be an issue nationwide.  The South Windsor Police are investigating an incident that occurred on Wednesday.  A local family received a phone call indicating that they owed the IRS $1300.00 and if it was not paid, the police would be sent to their house.   The victims are naturalized citizens of the U.S. and were fearful they may lose their immigration status.  The victims then purchased “Green Dot” cards and wired the money to a PayPal account.  The victims later contacted the police after suspecting it was a scam.  The information below is from the www.IRS.gov website:
The IRS will always send taxpayers a written notification of any tax due via the U.S. mail. The IRS never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone. For more information or to report a scam, go to www.irs.gov and type "scam" in the search box.
  People have reported a particularly aggressive phone scam in the last several months. Immigrants are frequently targeted. Potential victims are threatened with deportation, arrest, having their utilities shut off, or having their driver’s licenses revoked. Callers are frequently insulting or hostile - apparently to scare their potential victims.
  Potential victims may be told they are entitled to big refunds, or that they owe money that must be paid immediately to the IRS. When unsuccessful the first time, sometimes phone scammers call back trying a new strategy.
  Other characteristics of this scam include:

                  Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves.

                  Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security number.

                  Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling.

                  Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.

                  Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site.

                  After threatening victims with jail time or driver’s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, here’s what you should do:

                  If you know you owe taxes or you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS employees at that line can help you with a payment issue, if there really is such an issue.

                  If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you owe any taxes (for example, you’ve never received a bill or the caller made some bogus threats as described above), then call and report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1.800.366.4484.

                  If you’ve been targeted by this scam, you should also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their “FTC Complaint Assistant” at FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.
