Law enforcement is seeking information on an unsolved burglary involving nearly $30,000 of stolen property that took place earlier this month.
The burglary was discovered at 8 a.m. on Oct. 2 at a residence located at 4691 U.S. 160 East, according to Det. Brandon Bishop of the Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office, and likely took place some time the prior night.
Bishop said the burglar or burglars gained access to the house via a second story sliding door, using a ladder found on the property.
At least $27,000 worth of property was taken, Bishop said, including rugs, tools, furniture, household items and electronics. Additionally, furniture was piled in the driveway of the residence, with Bishop indicating the burglar likely intended to make a second trip to pick up the items.
The electricity in the house was turned off at the breaker by the burglar, Bishop said.
