Break-ins reported throughout DickinsonFirearms were allegedly stolen from an apartment in Dickinson, and others reported break-ins over the weekend, according to the Dickinson Police Department.
Firearms were allegedly stolen from an apartment in Dickinson, and others reported break-ins over the weekend, according to the Dickinson Police Department.
A man residing on Seventh Street Southwest said his apartment was broken into Thursday or Friday while he was away, DPD Capt. Joe Cianni said.
Five long guns and a tackle box were missing, he said.
“When he first came home, he didn’t notice any damage to the door, and after he saw those were missing, he inspected more closely and determined that there was some damage that appeared to be made by prying at the door,” Cianni said.
Break-ins at three houses under construction were reported Saturday, Cianni said.
“It’s unclear if they’re related, but there are a lot of similarities,” he said.
One of those houses was at 14th Street East, according to DPD.
“Nothing was actually taken, but they forced their way into this house that was under construction, damaging the front door and window,” Cianni said.
A house being constructed on State Avenue had the same type of damage reported.
“Someone went to tour it and found the garage access door had been forced open,” Cianni said. “They found that the basement patio was also open.”
Nothing was taken from the property, he added.
More damage was done to another house being constructed on 14th Street East, according to DPD.
“It looks like there was a few thousand dollars of drywall kicked or knocked off the walls and ceiling, and a picture window broken to a new construction,” Cianni said.
DPD received a report of a vehicle on Prairie Avenue being broken into Sunday as well.
A flash drive was missing from the vehicle and other items were “strewn about on the street and in the yard,” Cianni said.
No arrests had been made for any of the break-ins as of Monday afternoon, he said. Police are investigating.
