(STURGIS) – Authorities are investigating a pair of break ins that happened in the same block on the same day.
Sturgis Police were called to a house in the 400 block of East South Street at 12:45 AM Saturday to investigate a burglary. It seems the suspect or suspects forced their way into the home and stole multiple firearms. The family was home at the time of the robbery and said they did not hear the intruders.
Then at 5:30 AM, officers were called back to another home in the 400 block of East South Street for a second burglary. A woman was asleep and woke up to find two burglars in her home.
She was able to scare them off and they ran away from the scene with some cash. The victim was able to see one of the burglars and described him as a white man wearing dark pants, a black hoodie sweatshirt and a beanie hat.
The Sturgis K-9 officer attempted to track both incidents but was unable to locate the suspects.
If anyone has information on either of these incidents, they are asked to call the Sturgis Police at 269-659-7260 or St. Joseph County Central Dispatch at 269-467-4195.
