Burglaries in McLean, Daviess Counties could be connected | Crime
Stacy Logsdon has lived in Livermore for nine years. She says recent break-ins have her a little on edge after a close neighbor’s home was burglarized.
"I had a break in around the corner which was my father's place. They broke in on Easter Sunday and took expensive stuff."
Police say the trend started that weekend when thieves took thousands of dollars in tools and yard equipment. In McLean County, there have been seven burglaries.
But it doesn't stop there.
Daviess County has seen five burglaries of its own during the same time period.
“We are fairly certain the same people that are doing our burglaries are doing McLean County's and vise versa," said Captain Bill Thompson of the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department.
The sheriff’s office and McLean County investigators have worked together for the last couple months, trying to stop the burglars. Police have recovered a few items and interviewed persons of interest. So far, there have been no arrests.
“They had some outdoor equipment that was stolen in McLean County about the same time they recovered knives from here over there," said Thompson.
Police say they're still waiting on lab results to verify evidence. Logsdon says those results can't come soon enough.
"I just want to feel safer,” she said.
