The Boone County Sheriff’s Office wants to make the public aware of multiple burglaries/home invasions occurring in recent weeks with similar characteristics.

There have been two reports of elderly homeowners outside doing yard work when they were approached by a heavyset Hispanic male. Reports have been the male arrived in black Chevy Colorado or a older model blue truck.

While speaking with the residents an accomplice entered the home and stole several items in both cases. These incidents happened just south and southeast of the city of Belvidere. Another similar case was reported in the Marengo area.

Some tips to avoid this:
Shut garage doors and lock entry doors while doing yard work.
Carry your cell phone on you when outside working.
Should you encounter any person who approaches you in this manner that you don’t know, ask them to leave and call 911.

Should you have any information on this or any other crime contact the Sheriff’s Office at 815-544-9322 or Crime Stoppers at 815-547-7867.
