RPD-Burglary Advisory.

Riverside Residents-

I wanted you to know that we had a burglary overnight (5/10/16). In this incident, an offender entered through a window by cutting the window screen and then lifting up the glass window (100 block of N. Cowley). This burglary happened sometime between 12:30 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. and the entire family was home sleeping. Electronic equipment, wallet and cash were taken from the residence. This is an extremely rare occurrence in Riverside and I have my detectives working this case non-stop.

We have lifted latent prints from the scene and are working to try to track the cellphones and iPads that were stolen.

At this time we have no description of the offender(s).

I will keep the community updated with any new developments.
