Five Homes Burglarized in North Columbia
Five different residences were burglarized in the same area north of Columbia this week and Boone County sheriff's deputies believe three black males driving a stolen vehicle are responsible.
Yesterday (10/13/11) deputies responded to the 900 block of Obermiller Road after a resident returning home confronted three black males in their early twenties wearing blue jeans and white T-shirts.
One of the suspects was described as having a dread locks hair style and another was wearing a "doo-rag". The suspects fled the residence but left a gray 2002 Oldsmobile Alero reported stolen from Springfield, Mo., in the victim's driveway. A K9 officer and other deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the suspects. Nothing was reported stolen in this burglary.
On 10/12/11 money, checks and two flat screen TVs were stolen from a residence in the 4700 block of Roemer Road. A day earlier, two long guns were stolen from a home in the 8000 block of Route VV and TVs and a laptop computer were stolen from a residence in the 3500 block of Oakland Church Road. Also, that same day burglars kicked open a door at a home in the 6500 block of North Creasy Springs but fled after activating an alarm system.
