Homewood police investigating string of home burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Homewood Police are investigating a string of burglaries after four homes were targeted in less than a 24-hour period.

The first incident occurred Thursday evening at a home in the 500 block of Broadway Street, where police say burglars broke in through a window and stole two televisions before taking yard tools from a backyard shed.

The second incident happened just before noon on Friday at a home in the 400 block of Windsor Drive. Officers responded to a burglary alarm at the location, where a burglar apparently made an attempt to break into the home through the back door before fleeing the scene without entering. According to police, a possible suspect -- a young black male wearing a gray jacket and jeans -- was seen walking down the street near the home. Also, a white SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Tahoe or Ford Expedition, was seen parked in the driveway during the attempted burglary. 

Two more burglaries were reported Friday between 7:40 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Burglars forced their way through a door at a home in the 100 block of Lakeview Drive, where they stole electronics and jewelry. Burglars entered through a window at a home in the 200 block of Kent Drive and proceeded to steal credit cards, laptops, two guns and prescription medicine.

No arrests have been made and authorities are asking anyone with information regarding any of the cases to please contact the Homewood Police Department at 205-332-6200. If you see a suspicious person and/or vehicle in your neighborhood, you're urged to call 911 immediately.
