Martin County Sheriff’s Office alert: Palm City and Hobe Sound area burglaries

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is urging all residents to be on alert after a number of residential burglaries which occurred recently. Three homes were burglarized, two of which were in the gated communities of Hammock Creek and Hunters’ Club in Palm City. These recent burglaries are consistent with pillowcase style/traveling burglaries. These are the first pillowcase style burglary we have had in a gated community.

Witnesses report seeing a suspicious grey compact car in the area of two of the crimes. It is imperative that you call 9-1-1 if you see this, or notice any suspicious vehicle in your community. These alerts apply to all gated communities as well.

Detectives are also working a series of residential burglaries taking place in the Hobe Sound area. On 5/27 the Martin County Sheriff’s Office conducted a reverse 911 call to more than 2000 Hobe Sound residents warning them of the multiple burglaries in their area. We do not believe these are pillowcase burglaries, but we still urge residents to remain alert, use your alarms, and call 911 with reports of suspicious activities. Also, residents living in gated communities should be cautious of cars tailgating residents to make it through the gates.

Beginning tonight, Sheriff William Snyder along with the MCSO Community Operations, and Criminal Investigations Division will be once again visiting with HOAs to talk about the resurgence in burglaries. We are asking all Facebook followers to please share this information on your community and personal pages.

If you would like the Community Operations team to speak to your community or group, or you would like to set up a Crime Watch in your community, please call the Sheriff’s Office, or message with your contact information.
