A daytime burglary of a residence on St. James Court Tuesday prompted police to warn University of Wisconsin-Madison students headed out of town for spring break this month to take steps to prevent similar crimes. 

In a statement Wednesday morning, Madison Police Department spokesman Joel DeSpain suggested downtown residents lock doors on homes, garages and vehicles and secure sliding doors and windows. 

"Deadbolts are best," DeSpain said. "But utilize whatever type you have even when you are at home."

In securing vehicles, valuables such as GPS units should not be left in plain view. Police suggested drivers bring any valuables inside or put them in the trunk.
