DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) -

The Houston County Sheriff's Office and area local law enforcement are asking the community, due to the increase of burglary reports, to be aware of any unusual or suspicious vehicles (unattended or appearing to be abandoned) or suspicious persons walking around in your neighborhood.

If you see something suspicious, you're asked to contact your local law enforcement with as much descriptive information as possible of the persons and/or vehicle.

Police reports are indicating that the suspects are making entry into homes through the back door before taking electronic equipment including televisions, gaming equipment and firearms.

Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes says that if you see anyone or anything suspicious in your neighborhood, contact law enforcement and do not feel "that it's probably nothing".

Call local law enforcement, report it and let law enforcement determine if it's a valid concern.
