A recent rash of daytime home break-ins continued with another in East Tosa, and three businesses in an office building were hit in an overnight burglary.
According to Wauwatosa police reports:
A resident of the 2400 block of North 66th Street reported Jan. 14 that between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. someone broke in to the home and stole two television sets and an Apple laptop computer.
The homeowner told police she had gone to work, then to the gym, came home and entered through the back door, took a shower, and then went to her living room to watch TV, only to find the set missing and the front door standing open.
A second TV – both were 43-inch plasma sets – and the laptop were missing from an upstairs room. Police determined that someone had broken in through a second back door after climbing over a fence to reach an enclosed porch.
None of the woman's neighbors who had been home at any time of the day could recall seeing or hearing anything suspicious.
Office suites rifled, petty cash stolen
Three businesses suites in the office building at 2525 North Mayfair Road were found Thursday morning to have been broken into overnight, including Express Drug Screening.
The co-owner of that business arrived to find furniture knocked over and drawers and cabinets pried open, with small amounts of cash missing.
The door to that and two more businesses, unnamed in the report, had been pried open, as had an exterior door to the building.
