Police are investigating a string of burglaries near Miller Showers Park after a house located at 1305 N. Lincoln St. was broken into yesterday, the third residence in the area to be burglarized in two days.
Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said police responded to a call to the house at 2:32 p.m. Monday. One resident arrived to the house, which he shares with four roommates, to find a back window had been broken.
Two houses burglarized on Sunday in the same area were broken into by someone throwing a rock through a back window. In both of those cases, the rock was still at the scene when police arrived. Pedigo couldn’t say if there was a rock at the Lincoln Street house.
Officers checked the residence to find items had been thrown around. The burglar stole speakers, a Nintendo Wii, games, a bicycle, rain jackets and a sleeping bag from the house, Pedigo said.
A partially empty plate of food with a fork was also found on the floor, despite none of the residents of the house having been there for a while prior to Monday.
The investigation is active. Pedigo said police are working on locating a possible suspect they believe to also be involved in the other two burglaries.
