Basehor neighborhood reports three attempted break-ins in one night
Basehor Three residents of the Cedar Lake Estates neighborhood reported to Basehor police that someone attempted to break into their homes the night of April 22.
Police Chief Lloyd Martley said Monday that police were alerted of the attempted break-ins the morning after, leaving them with little chance to investigate the crimes.
One report came from a man who confronted the possible intruder at a house on Cedar Lane, according to police report records. Martley said the man witnessed the male suspect at his back door, then recovered a BB gun that the suspect dropped. The victim didn't report the incident until 8:42 a.m. the next morning, April 23.
Another resident on Bradford Court, according to Martley, reported hearing someone outside the house but didn't report it to police until 10:19 a.m. the next morning. A third resident reported to police at 1 p.m., according to police reports, that a screen door had been cut open sometime during the night but that nothing had been stolen.
"If there is any suspicious activity or anything that seems out of place, call the police at the time of the occurrence," Martley said. "If we're called a day later, there's likely very little we can do to help."
