Police seeking clues in rash of city burglaries

WALSENBURG — Walsenburg Police don’t have any suspects in a number of burglaries reported in the community beginning earlier this month. WPD Captain Vince Suarez said this week, a few tips have been called into the police department, but investigators don’t have any person(s) of interest in the ten reported incidents. Suarez told the World Journal Tuesday, there doesn’t appear to be a geographical pattern to the crimes, but evidence collected at the various scenes seem to indicate one burglar is acting alone. In the incidents, the individual or individuals are entering residences, garages, and vehicles. The burglaries happened on March 6th in the 200 block of Hendren Ave.; March 12th in the 1000 block of Hwy. 85/87 (two firearms were taken); March 14 in the 300 block of W 12th St.; March 14th in the 800 block of Colorado; March 15th in the 600 block of W 10th; March 15th in the 200 block of E 8th St.; March 18th in the 400 block of W 9th St.; March 18 in the 200 block of W 4th St.; March 18 in the 600 W. 10th Street and the 300 block of E 7th St. The WPD posted this information on their Facebook page last week, “Please take extra caution when leaving your homes to ensure all doors and windows are secured and make sure your vehicle is locked when you exit”. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 719-738-1056.
