CASTLE PINES, Colo. (CBS4) – Law enforcement in Douglas and Elbert counties would like the public’s help identifying suspects in a string of burglaries.
According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, between late March and late June several burglaries have occurred in the areas of Kiowa, Elbert County, Franktown and Castle Pines.
“They went through my drawers, they went through her jewelry and they took all our credit cards,” said one man who was victimized by the pair.
The man didn’t want to be named but did describe his experience. He said his home was hit about a week and a half ago on a Saturday afternoon. He left his backdoor unlocked when he left home.
“We never locked our house because we live way back off the road in a rural area,” said the burglary victim.
Deputies are looking for two women in connection with the burglaries. One is described as heavyset with blonde hair. The second woman is a brunette, possibly Hispanic, and shorter than the blonde suspect.
“These people will hit any house that’s available and they’re specifically looking for a remote area because they don’t think they’re going to be seen,” said Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Chad Teller.
Two vehicles have been spotted during the burglaries. One is a dark colored sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima with dark tinted windows and a spoiler. The other vehicle is a dark-colored truck, possibly a Ford F-Series.
Each time credit cards were stolen and then used, two women were captured on surveillance cameras.
“That was the most uncomfortable feeling to see them having a good time using our credit cards,” said the victim.
Investigators are hoping the community will recognize the thieves or someone will come forward with more information.
