The suspect frequently takes only small, easy to conceal items such as wallets and purses.
On October 17, 2001, 3 juveniles were arrested at Roosevelt High School after they attempted to sell items taken in a burglary that occurred near the same area as the previously reported “cat burglaries”. In addition to the stolen property, one of the juveniles was in possession of Crack Cocaine.
North Precinct Property Crime Detectives believe that several young males may be working together and be responsible for these burglaries. Detectives advise area residents to lock doors and windows before going to bed. They also suggest you screen young adults you let stay in your home. You are also encouraged to call 9-1-1, when you see suspicious activity.
If you have information that may lead to an arrest in this investigation call North Precinct Property Crime Detectives at (503) 823-4783.
