Police investigating rash of home burglaries in Eagle Valley neighborhood

Police are investigating three home burglaries that occurred over the last several weeks in the Eagle Valley neighborhood.

Woodbury Public Safety investigators aren't saying whether they believe the incidents are related. But they do have one common connection: the homeowners were out of town.

On Sept. 6 suspects gained forced entry into a home on Glen Eagle Road. They stole several items. Four weeks later on Oct. 11 a woman pet sitting for a family on vacation reported that the home she had been watching had been broken into on Eagle Valley Drive and various items were stolen. The woman told police she wasn't certain if she left a door unlocked, but there was no forced entry reported, according to an incident report.

The third burglary was reported Nov. 15. Burglars gained forced entry through the front door and stole several items in the home.

Woodbury Public Safety investigative technician Wendy Simone said police have spoken with the residents of each of the homes, but they haven't determined if there is a connection in the burlgaries.

Another burglary occurred on Glen Eagle Drive on Oct. 29. The residents were home and reported the incident the morning after it occurred. In the incident unknown suspects entered through the garage and stole an iPod and a GPS device from inside a vehicle.
