Greenwood Village police were investigating two nearby late night or early morning home break-ins on May 16. In one case, a homeowner’s dog was shot.
The first attempted burglary occurred in the 9100 block of East Stanford Place.
“The people were home. They attempted to gain entry through a bedroom window,” said Crystal Dean, the city’s public-information officer. “The suspects ran away. We do not have descriptions.”
A successful burglary was discovered by homeowners later, between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., in the 4300 block of Alton Street when the residents returned home.
“Somebody had broken into their home and shot one of their dogs,” Dean said. “The dog is expected to live. I believe it’s in surgery.”
It remained unclear at press time whether the two incidents were related.
“Common sense would say they are, but we don’t have anything to tie them together at this time,” the officer said. “They’re in the same neighborhood.”
It was also unclear whether the two incidents were related to a fatal burglary in south Denver the same night.
The investigations were ongoing.
