Burglars have forced their way into two homes in the 3300 block of Sheffield over the past two days.
A resident returning home around 12:30 today may have interrupted an in-progress burglary of their apartment. Responding officers found the back door of the apartment unsecured and some of the victim’s property lying in the alley. A laptop was left near the back door, leading officers to conclude that the prowlers were scared off before they finished the job.
After forcing their way in through a window, the burglars made off with the victim’s cable box and some dark blue luggage. CPD case HX198112.
Just 10 doors away, another Sheffield resident returned home Monday afternoon to discover that their condo had been burglarized. That incident was also the result of forcible entry.

Fix It Or Nix It
Needless to say, if you see crumbling door frames, broken locks, or posted signs like this one at your building, it’s time to reconsider your address.
