FISHERS, Ind. – Brazen burglars hit Fishers apartments in broad daylight.
Friday afternoon, Fishers police were called out to the Reveal Apartment complex off 116th and Cumberland. Thieves broke into four apartments by kicking in the front door.
“There is still that sense of violation to our property because that’s our home,” said tenant John Nelson.
No one was home when the thieves forced their way inside. Three of the four burglarized apartments were next to one another.
“Overall, the city is a very safe place to live, work and play, however, things happen. Thieves know when people are coming and going,” said Sgt. Tom Weger with the Fishers Police Department.
Police aren’t releasing exactly what the thieves got away with but say several items were taken from each place.
“When you assess the chances some people are willing to take the bolder, the more nerve wracking it is because it really shows just how much they don’t care and the risks they’re willing to take,” said Nelson.
Investigators tell FOX59 they’re looking through nearby surveillance cameras to see if a suspicious vehicle or person could be tied back to the apartments at the time of the crime.
“These suspects were probably seen by somebody that just didn’t realize they had criminal intent,” said Weger.
Police aren’t sure if they’re looking for one thief or multiple ones.
“Be more aware. We can help each other watch our property, our complex and maybe help each other avoid another situation like that in the future,” said Nelson.
