Lincoln Police are looking for two brave criminals who broke into an apartment complex in broad daylight.
When the 21-year-old resident of the apartment complex at 315 South 26th Street came home after a long day of work, he likely had no idea that two men had just ransacked his place. It didn't take long for him to find out.
"One of the windows on the ground level had the screen removed," said LPD Officer Shane Winterbauer. "The victim stated that he believes the suspect entered through an unlocked window."
While they were in there, Police say they took a PlayStation game system and two watches. They then left right out the front door.
Surveillance shows the men arriving in a Silver Pontiac Bonneville.
"Two younger, possibly Hispanic males or light complected black males exited the vehicle and the video shows them entering the apartment through the unlocked window on the outside," said Winterbauer.
Lincoln Police believe these two men have been at parties at this apartment before. They knew how to get in and they knew where to look. A good reason to keep in mind who's in your apartment especially if you don't know them.
"Make sure you know who's coming," said Winterbauer. "If you see somebody enter your house or residence and you don't know who they are, figure out who they came with and at least get a name."
Police suggest writing down the serial numbers of expensive electronics so they're easier to track down if they're stolen. Also, if you know you're going to be out of town for a while, tell any trusting neighbors so they can watch out for suspicious activity, as well.
