RPD-Burglary Advisory-

Riverside Police Warn of Burglaries

Riverside Police Department is advising residents that over the last three days there have been two garage burglaries on the 200 Block of Scottswood Road.

Each of these burglaries occurred during daytime hours and force was used in one incident by breaking a garage window and entering the garage and the in the other incident offenders entered a car that was unlocked in the driveway and simply pushed the garage door opener to enter the garage.

Electronic equipment and power tools were taken in both incidents and in one case they burglarized the home.

Riverside Police are urging residents to report any and all suspicious persons, vehicles and any unusual occurrences in their area.

Police have targeted patrols out on the streets including bicycle patrol. Riverside Detectives are currently working these cases continuously and have recovered some physical evidence from burglary scenes that they have submitted to the Illinois State Police crime lab for analysis.
