FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Fort Collins are hoping to track down a window peeper who may be connected to a series of burglaries.
Investigators have received about eight reports of window-peeping behaviors and approximately four burglaries that appear to be connected to a similar suspect.
The incidents have happened not far from the Colorado State University campus, and neighbors say they’re stepping up their vigilance.
“I avoid that by being extra proactive about closing blinds, closing windows, having lights on around the house and making it known that people are awake and aware of what’s going on,” Rachel Hartman, who lives in the area, said.
The reports of window-peeping have involved female victims. Police said the burglary investigations have not indicated that the theft of valuable property was the primary motivation for the burglary.
All the incidents have occurred since April in the western portion of Fort Collins and include the approximate area from Mason Street on the east to Taft Hill Road on the west and from Prospect Road on the south to Mulberry Road on the north.
Investigators believe there may be more incidents that have occurred that have not been reported.
Anyone with information about these or any unreported incidents is asked to contact Detective Andy Kinkead at 970-221-6557 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868. Crime Stoppers may also be reached through their website at www.stopcriminals.org.
