MADISON, Wis. - Burglars are targeting homes in rural areas of western Dane County, according to a release from the Dane County Sheriff’s Office.
Three burglaries were reported Wednesday night and one on Tuesday night. The burglars forced their way into homes and took jewelry, precious coins, electronics, cash and firearms, authorities said.
Witnesses told deputies that the burglars might be knocking on doors of homes first to see if anyone is there. If someone answers the door, they ask for directions to a nearby town and then leave.
The burglaries occurred in the towns of Dane, Middleton, Cross Plains and Oregon.
Deputies are asking residents to immediately report anything suspicious by calling 911. They’re hoping to get a vehicle description or license plate information. Businesses are asked to watch for and question customers who consistently sell large amounts of coins or jewelry.
Anyone with information related to the burglaries is asked to call the Dane County tip line at 608-284-6900.
