Streak of break-ins in Carbondale
The Carbondale Police Department issued an advisory Wednesday warning residents that several homes and vehicles were broken into Tuesday.
At approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday, a resident returned to a home on Euclid Avenue to find two burglars inside. One of the burglars had a weapon and both suspects fled the scene. No one was injured in the incident.
Another break-in occurred about 45 minutes later at a home on Vito’s Way and burglars attempted to break into a separate home nearby.
At 7 p.m., suspects broke into a car on North Eighth Street. The vehicle’s owner interrupted the burglary and the suspects fled the scene with a few stolen items. Two vehicles were broken into in the area of Euclid and Lincoln avenues and a vehicle was stolen sometime Tuesday night from Cleveland Place. The vehicle was found in Glenwood Springs Wednesday morning.
A second vehicle that had yet to be found as of Wednesday afternoon was stolen overnight Monday from the 100 block of North Eighth Street.
Every home and vehicle involved in the various incidents were unlocked and one of the stolen vehicles contained a set of car keys. The police department is asking citizens to lock their homes and vehicles and keep valuables out of unattended vehicles.
