Vandals break school portable windows, burglars ransack home on Monday

A North-end home near Secret Park was burglarized after the residents — a couple — left at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 14. They returned at 1:20 p.m. In the meantime, burglars ransacked the house, in the 2400 block of 65th Place S.E., and filled a pillowcase with stolen items: a Canon camera and 55-250 lens, Mac computer and Dell laptop. Police lifted fingerprints from the outside edge of the French doors. A metal drawer-pull with a scalloped brush-nickel finish, taken from the closet dresser, was placed into evidence.

A police officer responded to another burglary at Shorewood Heights in the 9000 block of West Shorewood Drive at 9:20 a.m. Someone pried the window of an office loose, and broke it, overnight or in the early morning. The alarm was not activated, but no apparent entry was made. The cost to replace the window is estimated at $400.

In a case of malicious mischief, three windows were broken out of a school portable at Lakeridge Elementary sometime Monday night, in the 8200 block of S.E. 78th Street. The vandals painted a line of silver spray paint on the back wall of the portable and left the paint can behind, on the ground, where two broken windows were found.
