Open Garage Doors Resulting in Burglaries

TOPEKA, Kan-- Topeka Police are reporting multiple burglaries to homes over the past few days. In two instances, burglars entered homes through open garage doors.

Items were taken from the home including the family car. The vehicle was recovered just after midnight Monday morning.

Another home was victim to open garage door burglar entry in Southwest Topeka. Burglars entered a home near 15th and Chelsea just after 5:00 a.m. Monday morning. Multiple items were stolen including an automobile. That vehicle was recovered a short time later at a local motel.
