Theft rate up in city for 2012

February 13, 2013

The number of calls for service for Granbury Police Department officers dropped in 2012, but one category among the city’s major crimes increased significantly.

Thefts rose from 289 in 2011 to 425 in 2012.

“Because a lot of the theft cases were shoplifting cases, one could make an argument that the economic situation, as well as the unemployment situation, probably played a role in those increases, but I can’t say for certain that is the case here,” GPD Chief of Police Mitch Galvan said.
