Police Captain Casey Moilanen says the homeowners reported that someone appeared to have entered their garage and stole cash, financial cards and a checkbook from a vehicle parked inside the garage in the 1,700 block of Walden Ln. Southwest. The homeowners also reported their vehicles were rummaged through. 


Police believe the suspect entered the garage through a side door that was locked but easy to force open. Moilanen said the suspected burglar then attempted to use one of the stolen financial cards to make a payment through a cash app but it was declined by the card holder’s bank.
