Aurora burglars keep to a tight schedule
You've got to respect anyone who uses his time wisely -- unless he's robbing your store.
The Aurora Police Department is on the lookout for a thief or thieves who tried and sometimes succeeded at breaking into nine businesses over a seven-hour stretch, from 9 p.m. Sunday, September 6, to 4 a.m. Monday, September 7 -- a rate of one attempt every 46.66 minutes. That's efficiency! Oh yeah: The businesses targeted were mostly hair and nail salons, with a tanning joint tossed in for good measure, suggesting that the scofflaws are mighty insecure about their cuticles.
Look below to read the APD release:
Aurora Police detectives are requesting assistance from the public in identifying the suspect(s) in nine burglaries and attempt burglaries that took place between the hours of 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 6th and 4:00 a.m. on Monday, September 7th.
Investigators believe the burglaries are related in that they all occurred in nail, hair or tanning salons in strip malls. All businesses are located east of I-225, and all had glass windows or doors smashed out.
Business owners are reporting that drawers and cabinets were rummaged through, but for the most part little of value was taken. The greatest monetary loss comes from the damage to properties.
Daisy Nail Salon -- 5476 S. Parker Rd. Hair Color Xpert -- 5496 S. Parker Rd. East Hampden Tanning Salon -- 18757 E. Hampden Ave. All Star Nails -- 4284 S. Chambers Rd. After Effects Hair Salon -- 4256 S. Chambers Rd. Aurora Nails and Hair -- 15042 E. Mississippi Ave. BMT Hair and Nails -- 15053 E. Mississippi Ave. RM Nails -- 1250 S. Buckley Rd. CO Nails -- 1740 S. Buckley Rd.
The Aurora Police Department is offering up to $750.00 for information leading to the arrest and charging of the suspect(s).
Anyone with information on these burglaries is asked to call 303.627.3100 or Sgt. R. Wesner at 303.627.3152.
