Crime Alert – Denver Police Report Several Burglaries of Staged Homes on the Market; Offering Reward
During the month of November 2012, there were a series of burglaries in “staged” houses that were up for sale and located in District 2. “Staged” houses are generally vacant houses with “rented” furniture so potential buyers can see how the residence will look. Those addresses were located in the North Park Hill area between M.L.K-38th/Monaco-Quebec.
During the month of December 2012, a new series of burglaries occurred in the “staged” houses that were up for sale. These residences were located in the Cole/Whittier/Clayton and North City Park neighborhoods.
The Denver Police Department is asking that anyone with information on these series of crimes, contact Detective Philip Stanford at (720) 913-1009 or Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867).
They are also asking citizens to be on the lookout for suspicious parties at homes for sale in their neighborhoods. Contact the Department through its non-emergency number at (720) 913-2000 or call 911 if it’s an emergency.
