Cat burglars struck four homes last weekend in the Powderhorn, Westridge and Meadow Ranch subdivisions in South Jeffco. In three of the incidents, residents were home at the time.
A news release from the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office said the perpetrator or perpetrators entered the homes through unlocked rear doors or windows. Items taken included wallets, purses, jewelry and cash.
The first incident occurred early on Feb. 2, with the last coming Feb. 4. Residents in at least one case were awake during the burglary but were unaware someone had entered the home, the sheriff reported.
Anyone with information regarding these crimes is asked to call the Jeffco sheriff’s tip line at 303-271-5612.
The sheriff urges residents to lock doors and windows, and to watch for suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.
