SUPERIOR, Colo. (CBS4) – The Boulder County Sheriff’s Department would like the public’s help locating a suspect in a burglary of a Boulder County deputy’s residence early Wednesday morning.

Cmdr. Rick Brough said the deputy returned to his home around 2:30 a.m. to discover he’d been burglarized. His home is located in the 2800 block of Rock Creek Circle in Superior.

Among the items the deputy reported stolen were two personally-owned handguns, the deputy’s duty belt, and X26 Taser, two badges, a portable police radio, and two personally-owned computers.

Police call the burglary a public safety concern. They fear the suspect may try to impersonate a police officer and commit more crimes.

“You get badges out there; you know right away if somebody sees a badge they right away assume the person is a police officer,” Brough said. “So when we get any pieces of uniform out there, there’s always concern.”

The guns that were stolen were two semi-automatic .45 caliber handguns.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact the Boulder County Sheriff’s Department or any police department.
