Burglaries stymie Aspen police
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN ” Three thefts from homes or cars in an East End neighborhood have Aspen police tracking down leads on what may be a connected series.
One burglary and one criminal trespass were reported to the Aspen Police Department on Monday morning, Sgt. Bill Linn said.
So far, police have responded to the burglary of a house, the burglary of a construction shed and a car that was broken into, all in the same neighborhood. Linn would not say the exact area where the alleged crimes have been occurring, citing an ongoing investigation.
“It is such an odd place for any crime. The fact that three have been reported would suggest a common denominator,” Linn said.
A computer was stolen from the house and other items of lesser value were taken in the other thefts, Linn said.
Police are encouraging people to be aware and pay attention to unusual activities.
