West Fargo police investigating string of garage burglariesWEST FARGO – Police here are investigating a string of garage burglaries over the weekend in the Charleswood addition.
Six unlocked garages and one unlocked vehicle in a two-block area were entered Saturday night or early Sunday morning, Assistant Chief Mike Reitan said.
“It appears that the individuals were checking every one of the garages to see what was unlocked,” Reitan said.
A laptop computer and $200 were stolen during the thefts, he said.
Residents in the area also reported three thefts last Wednesday involving the same method, Reitan said.
Authorities belief the same individual or individuals took part in those thefts, he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at (701) 433-5500.
