Southwest Sioux Falls Burglary "Spree"



Bookmark and Share

Sioux Falls Police are calling it a "burglary spree", and the numer of businesses hit continues to climb after a busy weekend. However, who is behind these crimes remains a mystery.

"It's something that the officers are aware of and detectives are working on that as well," said Officer Sam Clemens of the Sioux Falls Police Department.

Commercial busineses in Sioux Falls should be on guard, after 28 burglaries in southwest Sioux Falls have happened in October alone.

"Everywhere on 41st st. we've had a lot of businesses that have been broken into, so officers have been checking the areas," said Officer Clemens.

The businesses range from hair salons to dry cleaners. And in some cases, nothing has been taken. However, most share similarities in their break-ins.

"A lot of these businesses, not all of them but a lot of them, it's been the back door that's been forced open," said Officer Clemens.

After weeks of these seemingly similar crimes, Police are still questioning who is behind it.

"We're trying to work on figuring out whether it's one person or two people or even several people that's responsible," said Officer Clemens.

The Eyemart on 41st St. is just one of more than half a dozen commercial businesses that were burglarized in a similar fashion over the weekend.

Nearly a quarter of the October burglaries have taken place on the 3500 block of 41st St. near Westport.

"And if any of these are connected, if we've got different groups that are operating as well, a lot of questions out there that we don't have the answers to at this point," said Officer Clemens.

For now, there's no knowing when or where the burglars will hit next.

If you have any information on these crimes, please call Crime Stoppers or Police.
