Incident Location: Douglas County, Oregon
Case Number: 11-1539
Sheriff's deputies are investigating three residential burglaries that have occurred since April 20th, 2011, that have similar circumstances.
The burglaries occurred:
April 20th - 1100 block Newton Creek Road, Roseburg.
April 26th - 3100 block Hughes Street, Roseburg.
April 26th - 1261 Troost Street, Roseburg.
All three of the burglaries appear to have occurred while the houses were occupied, possibly during the early morning hours while residents were sleeping. Purses and cash have been taken with the suspect(s) leaving behind larger and more valuable property. It also appears that entry was gained through unlocked doors as there have been no signs of forced entry.
The cases remain under investigation and there is no suspect information to release at this time. If anyone has any information on these cases they can call the Sheriff's Office at 541-440-4471.
The Sheriff's Office would like to remind residents to lock their homes. Locking your doors and windows is one of the easiest and most effective ways to safeguard your property.
