Two houses in the 400 block of North Washington Street were burgled sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning.
The men living in one of the homes told police they left for the bars around 11:30 p.m. Thursday and returned around 1:30 a.m. Friday to find multiple electronics and other items missing.
Three laptops, a luggage bag, a playstation and a Louis Vuitton purse were taken.
Two men, 24 and 21 years old, live in the house. A 21-year-old woman was visiting them at the time of the burglary.
The men told police they left the back door unlocked. There were no signs of forced entry to the home.
Just down the street, women who lived in another house told police a similar story.
A 21-year-old woman and her roommates went out Thursday night and returned around 1 a.m. Friday. When they returned home, they told police they noticed their back door was unlocked.
Though they didn’t initially realize anything was gone, the 21-year-old realized her backpack was missing later that day.
She told officers the backpack held an Apple laptop, her wallet, school books and other supplies.
The women said one of her roommates was in the house at the time of the burglary, but she didn’t hear anything.
