Two Rural Lincoln Homes Burglarized in Broad Daylight

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office is investigating two burglaries that happened in broad daylight just a few miles from each other.

Deputies say sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday someone broke into a home in the 7300 block of southwest 40th Street.

Deputies say the burglar forced the door open and stole electronics, which is eerily similar to what happened not far away in the 5000 block of southwest 56th Street.

The woman who lives there - who wished not to be identified - wonders if the burglar had targeted her home for quite some time.

"Where we live isn't a very populated area," she said. "I don't know if he knew us, I don't know if he lives out in this area or if he just drives around town looking for places to target."

The woman's boyfriend was visiting her in the hospital before he came home to find the house had been broken into.

"It looked like he kind of took his sweet time because he kind of picked what he wanted," she said.

The burglar took an Xbox, a Nintendo Wii and a camcorder. He even went upstairs and took money that was supposed to be put in a savings account for her daughters.

"There were piggy banks that were laying on the counter that had money in them too, and he didn't touch those."

Which makes her wonder how long the burglar was actually in the house.

"It seems like it was kind of a rush job, but yet sometimes it seems like he kind of walked around for awhile and took things, so I don't know."
