Hesston police chief Doug Schroeder said a string of burglaries that have taken place in the community have been unusual, as the suspect(s) have been entering homes while residents are still inside.
“I think it’s an extra intrusion into their privacy. It’s a brazen move by the criminal,” said Schroeder.
A report was made in which a women’s wallet was stolen from her home on N. Weaver. It is believed that the victim was at home and in a different room when the suspect let themselves in the door and took the wallet.
“The credit cards were taken and later used. It was of criminal intent, it wasn’t just a lost wallet,” said Schroeder.
