4 Home Break-Ins Could Be Connected

Law enforcement authorities are investigating three residential break-ins in the same subdivision since Friday. Authorities suspect all 3 of the break-ins could be connected including a fourth break-in a few miles away.

Last Friday, a break-in was discovered on Sicily Drive in the Tuscany subdivision, off Highway 42 East of Clayton near Motorcycle Road.  A large amount of cash was stolen from a home after someone forced open a window to gain entry between 7:00pm and 11:15pm while the owner was away.

Two days later, on Sunday, a break-in was discovered at a nearby home on Castello Way.  The homeowner reported $10,250 in property was taken including money and jewelry. Once again, forced entry was made into the home through a window.   The victim said the break-in occurred sometime between 3:00pm Friday and 10:20pm Sunday.

On Monday, a resident on Sardinia Lane in the Tuscany development reported $400 in property, including a bracelet and earrings,  was taken during a break-in between Friday night and Monday afternoon.  Like the two previous break-ins, a window was forced open to gain entry.

Less than six miles away, a break-in was reported Monday afternoon on Thanksgiving Fire Road, just off Highway 42 East.  The victim said someone threw a brick threw a window to get inside.  A total of $3,600 in property was stolen including a TV, sawzall, and three guitars.  The homeowner said the break-in occurred while they were away from home between 3:00pm and 4:00pm.
