Police investigate several break-ins

A chatty burglar broke into a south-end home on Thursday as the resident slept, then had a brief conversation with her before he left.

The strange incident is among the latest in a string of break-ins in Brandon reported by police.

Early Thursday morning, a man entered a woman’s home near First Street and Maryland Avenue as she slept.

The woman awoke and had a brief conversation with the intruder, after which he left. Shortly after, the woman discovered that her sewing machine and HP tablet were missing.

She reported the incident to police about seven hours after it happened.

The suspect is described as 18 to 20 years old, and aboriginal with short, dark hair.

Also Thursday morning, police were told of a break and enter to a home on the

1200-block of 10th Street that happened on June 30.

Suspects entered through an unlocked window and took a PlayStation 3 gaming system. They also damaged the interior of the home.

In a third case, a resident on the 100-block of 26th Street reported that her home was entered sometime in the morning of July 15.

There was no sign of forced entry, but a box of shoes was missing.

Each of the cases is unsolved, and anyone with information is asked to call police or phone Crime Stoppers at 204-727-8477.
