Police are tracking a burglar or burglars who stole a safe containing between $30,000 and $50,000 in cash from a home near 22nd West and 86th South.
The occupants of the home left town Sunday morning, and their daughter found things amiss when she stopped by late Monday morning to check on the house, said police investigator Vern Peterson. She called police after the outside door fell off the hinges when she opened it. A basement window had also been broken out, Peterson said.
The family told police they kept cash, vehicle titles, several mature savings bonds and other valuables in the safe, which was hidden but not secured inside a small closet. Several buckets full of coins and collectibles, such as $2 bills, were included in the cash taken.
Peterson said he began questioning one of several suspects Tuesday and believes the burglar was someone who knew the family.
