Ballard Crime Watch: Three homes hit by burglaries

Oct. 26, 9:20 p.m., 7700 Block of 16th Ave NW -- A woman had approximately $50,000-worth of jewelry stolen from her home. The metal, back door of the kitchen was forced in and her bedroom was rifled through. No other rooms were touched. The victim said her home was burglarized in 2006 in the same way. She said she was starting a detailed list of each item and will submit it with a followup form.

Oct. 26, 10:42 p.m., 4400 Block of 2nd Ave NW -- A burglar went through a home and stole an Apple Macbook Pro, an unknown amount of jewelry and approximately three alcohol bottles (totaling to about $1,500-worth of items stolen). Two file drawers with paperwork were rifled through but the victim was unsure anything had been taken. The responding police officer noted that the suspect used a ladder stolen from the next door neighbor and broke in through the kitchen window. The victim was able to provide a serial number for the Macbook and the officer gave her followup forms. The officer could not find any surfaces that he could lift fingerprints from.

Oct. 27, 1:12 a.m., 7700 Block of Mary Ave NW -- A burglar used a BBQ utensil to pry a window open and proceeded to rifle through the victim's bedroom drawers. The back door was also found unlocked. The victim was left with property followup forms.
