Hot Burglary In Minneapolis

The Minneapolis Police SAFE Unit has issued a Crime Alert following a "hot" (with residents home) burglary in the Northrop neighborhood of Minneapolis:

Burglars enter Northrop parkway home August 14, 2006


Police responded to a report of a burglary on Minnehaha Parkway East in Northrop neighborhood that took place between 3 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning, Aug. 13. Unidentified suspects entered the house while the victim was asleep and took numerous items. The victim was not injured. An investigation is underway. There is little available suspect information.
Hot burglaries are a particularly bold crime because of the exceedingly high chance of confrontation. This generally means the criminals (I note the release used the plural) are very desperate, or are not afraid of the resident. Neither case is good news.

It's likely that unless these rats are caught soon, they will strike again.
