DEPARTMENT CASE NUMBER: 15S008035 & 15S008169
LEAD DETECTIVE: DET. WINT, SEDGWICK COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an increase in burglaries while the residents were at home in the southeast area of Sedgwick County.

About 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3, a resident in the 13700 block of E. 63rd St. S. heard a knock on the door, but ignored it. A short time later there was a noise in the living room. The resident confronted a man climbing in through a living-room window. The intruder fled westbound on 63rd Street in a white, late '80s model, 4-door Mercury. He is described as a white man with a beard and mustache. He was wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans, a blue ball cap and sunglasses.

About 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6, residents in the 13500 block of E. 41st St. S. heard a knock on the door but didn’t answer. Shortly thereafter a man knocked on another door, asking if anyone was home. When no one answered he walked into the home. A man and woman confronted him in the kitchen. They said he put his head down, turned around and left the house. He is described as a white man wearing a leather motorcycle-style vest and a hat. He was driving a white, mid-size American-made SUV.
The two cases may be connected, as well as other burglaries in the area.
