Police are investigating a string of thefts after a home burglary produced important leads.
On the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 2, the resident of a home on Indian Home Road reported unknown subjects entering their garage, Lt. Jeff Moule said.
While no one was injured, the subjects removed property and vehicles from inside the garage. Moule said the victims were unsure whether they had closed their garage doors the night before.
Some of property was recovered and returned to the victim, including a backpack that contained another person's name.
"We followed up with that person and that person was a victim of their car being broken into," Moule said. "They didn't report because thought it was insignificant."
Recently, there have been several auto burglaries in the Indian Home Road area, most of which occur when residents leave computers and other valuables in plain view.
"There is a group of people moving through neighborhoods checking doors and looking through windows. We encourage people to lock their doors, and remove all items of value from their vehicles to not attract burglars," Moule said.
[Correction, Feb. 11 In January, Danville police came upon video taken by a home surveillance system that captured a group of teenagers or young adults peering through car windows.
Moule said the police have distributed the video to neighboring law enforcement agencies, asking them to review the video in hopes of making an identification.
Moule encourages anyone with information to call the police at 646-2441.
