A burglary was reported on 4-13-05 at 2200 hours by a resident of the 100 block of S. 15th Street. The victim returned home to find a burglar inside her home. When she walked in the front door, he was standing about 10 feet in front of her. He turned and fled out the window that he had entered through. The victim has pets in the home and left the window partially opened. The window is not visible from the street. You must enter her yard to view the window. The actor stole some items and other items that he had gathered were left behind. The man is described as a white male wearing a "puffy ghetto coat" that was either dark blue or black.
This is the third burglary that occurred in the past few weeks that resembled this one. This burglar is scaling walls and fences, entering unlocked windows. He is doing this in the evening when it gets dark, but before 1:00am.
Zone 3 Police hope that we get the word out to the citizens to please be sure to lock their windows and to be aware of anyone suspicious in the area.
