Two more residential burglaries were reported at locations in the Burbank Hills recently. In both cases, the unknown suspects made entry through open or unlocked windows during the daytime.
On Tuesday, March 11, between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., thieves entered a residence on the 500 block of Orange Grove Avenue through an open bedroom window facing a walkway.
The downstairs, two-bedroom apartment had some drawers left ajar and the only reported loss was under $1000 in U.S. currency in an envelope form the victim’s dresser, said Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department.
While there was no pry bar marks on the bedroom window, the window screen could not be located outside the apartment, he added. There are no suspects, video or descriptions of possible vehicles at this time.
Another daytime burglary was reported on the 800 block of S. Sunset Canyon between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 12. In this case, unknown suspects cut the screen and entered through an unlocked bedroom window.
When the victim arrived home from work and saw the residence was ransacked, he called police to investigate in case someone was still inside. The Burbank Police airship assisted with the ensuing search of the area and discovered a ladder propped against the house next to the bathroom window, according to Ryburn.
A rifle, several watches and jewelry were reported stolen from the residence. There are no suspects, video or further information about the case at this time.
