Eagle River police investigating burglaries PDF Print E-mail

The Eagle River Police Department is investigating a series of nighttime burglaries that have occurred recently, according to a police department press release issued Wednesday morning.

Four businesses in the city of Eagle River have been entered in a short span of time with no signs of forced entry, according to Police Chief Mark Vander Bloomen. Money or personal electronics were removed from the establishments, he said.

Vander Bloomen said all businesses

are encouraged to ensure that all doors and windows are locked at the close of business and that any money is removed or deposited at the close of each business day to safeguard against loss.


At this time, Vander Bloomen said it is believed that the person or persons responsible are targeting businesses that have left doors or windows unintentionally unlocked to gain entry.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Eagle River Police Department at (715)?479-1941.

I can not imagine so many stores "leaving there doors unlocked"

I'll bet there is a common denominator here.

I would like to see the names of the stores published. This is a small town. someone knows something
