COLUMBIA — Detectives with the Boone County Sheriff's Department think five burglaries that occurred between Tuesday and Thursday in an area just north of Columbia could be the work of three male suspects working together.
Deputies responded Thursday to a resident's report of attempted burglary at a home in the 900 block of Obermiller Road, according to a release from the department.Det. Tom O’Sullivan said the suspects ran away and left behind a gray 2002 Oldsmobile Alero, which was reported stolen from Springfield. Nothing was reported stolen in this incident, the release stated.
Stolen items include:
- Two long guns on Tuesday from a home in the 8000 block of Route VV;
- TVs and a laptop computer stolen on Tuesday from a home in the 3500 block of Oakland Church Road; and
- Money, checks and two flat screen TVs stolen on Wednesday from a home in the 4700 block of Roemer Road.
A door was kicked in at another house, in the 6500 block of North Creasy Springs, but the suspects fled after the house's alarm system was activated.
O'Sullivan said the items taken were collectively worth at least several thousand dollars.
