MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Eden Prairie police are reminding residents to keep their garage doors closed, their entrances secure and to report suspicious activity after three daytime burglaries in late March.
The burglaries, which police say are connected, happened between March 21 and March 28 near the intersection of Eden Prairie Road and Valley View Road.
In each case, the burglars entered homes through unlocked doors or entrances without a locked deadbolt, police said. In two of the three incidents, neighborhood residents saw suspicious activity, but failed to report it immediately.
Police recommend that the residents: (1) secure all entrances with a 1-inch thick deadbolt lock, (2) close garage doors and services door during the day, and (3) report suspicious activity by calling 911.
