On 07/23/2022, LMPD responded to a residential burglary, which occurred sometime overnight on 07/22/2022 into 07/23/2022. Entry was made through a sliding glass door to a 2nd floor condo through its private balcony. The balcony would have been easily accessed by any agile person.
The offender/s first tried to pry in multiple areas then shattered the glass in the door to make entry. Pry marks appeared to have an end consistent with a flathead screw driver which had a textured surface.
The offender/s barricaded the main door to the condo with two pieces of furniture from the inside, presumably to allow them warning and extra time to exit if someone came home. It also appears the offender/s may have slept in the children’s beds since both bunks were observed not as the homeowner left them. The only stolen items were jewelry. Electronics that had been left in plain view were untouched.
