County Police Warn of Possible Serial Burglars

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – Police in south St. Louis County are warning of possible serial burglars hitting the area.

In a Facebook post Thursday, St. Louis County Police Officer Dave Sebek warned residents of neighborhoods near the intersection of Interstates 55 and 270 of several recent burglaries that he believes are connected.

Sebek says in cases on September 4 and August 18, a few young men drove a dark SUV into neighborhoods, backed the car into a driveway or garage, broke in, loaded the car and took off.

Often neighbors are reporting the men will stop to ask if any yard work needs to be done before moving on.

“Sunset Hills has had a few occurrences as well and it seems like electronics, jewelry silver items,” Sebek says.

Other incidents happened in Butler Hill and Weber Trail and tend to occur near the two interstates.
