Summertime is here and unfortunately that could mean a rise in crime.

For many of you taking weekend trips or going on vacation the Thomasville police department offers a service that could be helpful to you!

They offer house checks, making sure everything is safe while you're gone.

"We'll usually do whatever the homeowner wants us to do, we will have special instruction if they want us to get out and walk around the house or if they just want us to ride by the house and shine. Whatever it is that they want to do. We'll make some recommendation based on the type of crime and whats happened." said Major Shane Harris, Thomasville Police Department.

There was a burglary that happened at the end of May, pictures are attached in this story. If you have any information on who this suspect is you are encouraged to call the Thomasville police department.
