Investigators, based on surveillance images, believe four burglars were involved. All four wore jackets with the hoods pulled tightly over their face. A white four-door sedan, possibly a late 1990s Honda Civic, was likely used in the spree, police said. One of the burglars wore a light gray hoodie with “True Religion” printed on the back.
Anyone with information on the burglaries, or on possible suspects, is asked to call police at 720-898-6900.
