Attempted burglaries in Sugar Grove unsolved

SUGAR GROVE – The four attempted burglaries in the Black Walnut subdivision this month remain unsolved, said John Sizer, Sugar Grove police department investigator.

“We really don’t have much to work with,” he said. “Basically, we just want people to be aware of what’s going on.”

The attempted burglaries happened about 3 a.m. Oct. 13 in the 800 block of Longview Court – a cul-de-sac of relatively new single-family homes, Sizer said.

It appeared the offender or offenders attempted to pry their way into the garages, Sizer said, noting there was visible damage. One resident also heard someone rattling the front door knob.

Sizer said it appears to be an isolated incident.

Police also believe the attempted burglaries were unrelated to the removal of political yard signs that same night, Sizer said.

The sooner police know about suspicious activity – car doors slamming and activity in vacant homes, for example – the better their chances of resolving the issue, Sizer said. Details from residents might help police establish a pattern, which could lead to an arrest in a case.

“We’re here to be bothered,” he said. “Please bother us.”
