OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Oshkosh police say they were kept busy over the weekend after they dealt with ten reported burglaries and vehicle thefts.
It began on Saturday, when police responded to six break-ins to vehicles and one overnight burglary.
The burglary took place at a business in the 500 block of North Main Street. Authorities say cash was stolen from the till, but they aren't saying how much.
Two of the break-ins to vehicles happened in the 1600 block of Burdick Avenue. The suspect took loose change from one of the vehicles and broke in to the second. However, nothing was taken from that vehicle.
Four other thefts took place on North Main Street. Around 1 N. Main, a GPS unit and a set of golf clubs were taken from two vehicles. Golf clubs were also taken from vehicles in the 400 and 500 blocks of N. Main. One of the vehicles also had a stereo system swiped from it.
Then on Sunday, police investigated three burglaries overnight.
The first happened in the 500 block of N. Main Street. A burglar broke in to a business around 12:45 a.m. and stole cash. Surveillance video showed the burglar to be about 5'10", 220 pounds, wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants, with a hood, mask and gloves.
A home in the 1100 block of High Avenue was broken into. A suspect there took cash and electronics. In the 500 block of Pearl Avenue, someone tried breaking into a business but was unable to.
The Oshkosh P.D. is reminding people that many of these crimes are crimes of opportunity. Removing valuables from vehicles and locking your vehicle door removes the opportunity for the thief. Reporting suspicious incidents or persons is also important and may prevent or solve a crime.
Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact Winnebago County Wide Crime Stoppers by phone at (920) 231-8477, by text message with the keyword IGOTYA to 274637 or online.
