Residential Burglaries, Deerbrook Edition

The Bettendorf Police Department is actively seeking the public’s assistance with residential burglaries that occurred in the early morning hours on October 24, 2019.

On Thursday October 24, 2019 during the morning hours officers were dispatched to 5 residences located in the Deerbrook Addition in regards to burglaries or attempted burglaries. At this point it appears that 3 residences were entered where items were taken in the 3600blk of Deerbrook Drive, the 3700blk of Deerbrook Drive, and the 3800blk of Brookwood Lane. Also it appears that 2 attempted burglaries occurred in the 1400blk of Antler Ct. and the 1400blk of White Tail Drive but no entry was made. These all occurred when the residents were present in their homes sleeping. It was only after they had woke up and came downstairs in the morning did they discover and realize that something had occurred.

Entry was gained through ground level windows that were not secured or latched and/or slightly ajar making it obvious they were not secured. In these cases if there was a screen the screen was either cut or removed.

This is a reminder to secure all your doors, garage doors, and windows to your residence along with locking your vehicles.

Please be on the lookout for suspicious activity in your neighborhood and if anyone has information regarding these incidents, they are encouraged to call the Bettendorf Police Department at 563-344-4015, or Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities at 309-762-9500.
