Eden Prairie Police Department reports two recently burglarized homes

Eden Prairie police reported that two dwellings had been burglarized recently within city limits.

The first burglary took place between 3-6:30 p.m. July 25, at a residence on the 10000 block of Nottingham Trail. The reporting party was a 45-year-old Eden Prairie woman.

The victim stated that she had left the premises at 3 p.m. that day, and upon returning at 6:30 p.m., discovered that her Hewlett-Packard laptop computer was missing. The device, she said, was usually sitting on the kitchen table or counter, near a window that she discovered was unlocked.

All of the doors to the home had been locked, and the victim noted that the windows were usually locked as well, but the kitchen window may have been left unlocked by a relative. She reported that there was no damage to any doors or windows, and speculated that an unknown person entered the kitchen through the window and took the computer.

The second burglary took place between 5:30-6:30 a.m. July 26, at a residence on the 14000 block of Hickory Court. The reporting party was a 48-year-old Eden Prairie woman.

According to the victim, a garage door had been left open in the hour-long period that morning. When she went to leave at 6:30 a.m., she noticed that around $20 worth of change was missing from a vehicle in the garage. The driver’s side door of that vehicle was also left open.
