Detectives Seek Help in Residential Burglary Series
Fort Collins Police are asking for the community’s help solving a series of residential burglaries.
Since January 2019, detectives have investigated five break-ins with similar characteristics. The incidents occurred during daytime hours, and homeowners were all of Asian descent (different nationalities) and own local small businesses such as restaurants or salons. Suspect/s forced entry into the homes and typically targeted cash. Residents were not home when the break-ins occurred.
Officers believe these incidents may be related to at least 20 similar burglaries that have occurred in other Front Range jurisdictions since January, including Arapahoe County, Douglas County, Jefferson County, Greeley, and Castle Rock.
Detectives have been working with members of the business community to identify potential leads but need additional help to solve these cases. Anyone with information about these incidents or suspect/s is encouraged to contact Fort Collins Police Detective David Lindsay at 970-416-2634 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
