Fort Collins Police Seek Community’s Help in Solving Series of Residential Burglaries
On May 2, the Fort Collins Police Department put out a memo asking for the public's help in solving a series of residential burglaries that are extremely similar in nature.
Since January 2019, detectives have been investigating five different home break-ins that all took place during daytime hours while residents were not there. Furthermore, all of these burglaries targeted homeowners of Asian descent, though different nationalities – who also all own local small businesses, including restaurants and salons. In all of these instances, the suspect/s forced entry into the homes and went for cash. The police believe that these burglaries could possibly be tied to at least 20 other similar cases that have occurred in the Front Range since January, including Arapahoe County, Douglas County, Jefferson County, Greeley, and Castle Rock.
Anyone with information or potential leads that could help to solve this case 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.
