South Minneapolis burglary caught on homeowner’s security camera
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -
Minneapolis police have released several photos of four home burglary suspects caught on surveillance cameras installed by the owners after a burglary earlier in the year.
During the afternoon of Wednesday, Nov. 7, Minneapolis police officers responded to a report of a burglary on the 5200 block of Columbus Avenue South.
Officers learned one of the homeowners had come downstairs around 2:30 p.m. and discovered her purse missing from the kitchen. The homeowner reviewed security camera footage from the kitchen and saw four burglars who were in the house just moments earlier, including two who were armed with handguns.
Video showed the burglars taking the purse, cash and a Nook reader before leaving.
At the time of the burglary, the two adult victims and a two-year-old child were in another part of the home and were unaware the burglary was occurring.
This case is assigned to Sgt. Mark Gasior of the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct Investigations Unit. Sergeant Gasior is asking for the public's help to identify the burglars. Anyone who can provide the identities of these suspects or any other information helpful to this investigation is asked to contact Sgt. Gasior at 612-673-5357 or firstname.lastname@example.org
