Crime often increases when temperatures rise. But according to local authorities, the exact opposite is happening in Lucerne Valley.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Wendell Anderson, who runs the Lucerne Valley substation, said reported crime took a dip over the first 3 1⁄2 weeks of July.
“I’m happy to report that this month, up until the 24th of July, we’re only at 30 reports drawn, which is relatively low,” said Anderson at last week’s Municipal Advisory Council meeting.
