Police said they are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect linked to a string of residential burglaries with common occurrences.
Jenny Monroe, spokeswoman for the Edmond Police Department, said the agency is investigating seven residential burglaries that occurred Monday in different parts of the city.
“All of the burglaries have the same method of entry and the same type of contents stolen,” Monroe said. “The suspect kicked in a door and stole coins from the homes. Other valuable items were left untouched in these homes.”
Monroe said one of these burglaries happened with a woman and her young son inside the house at the time. Monroe said the occupants were not injured.
Monroe said the burglaries occurred on:
• Lost Rock Trail, located east of Washington Irving Elementary;
• Park Place, located near Fink Park. Monroe said $200 in change was reported stolen;
• South Trail Ridge Road, located east of Washington Irving Elementary;
• Bradford Place, located near the Danforth-Santa Fe intersection. Monroe said nothing is known stolen at this time;
• Mary Lee Lane, located near Memorial High School. Monroe said in this incident the resident was home, heard footsteps upstairs, called 911 and left home with her 2-year-old son. Nothing is known stolen at this time;
• A second home was hit on Mary Lee Lane. Monroe said nothing was known stolen at this time; and
• East Drive, located near Memorial High School. Monroe said $300 in change was reported stolen out of a bucket in the home.
Monroe said the suspect is being described as a 16-19 years old black male who was wearing gym shorts, a white T-shirt and driving an older model white sedan.
