Police searching for Woodlawn Avenue burglary suspect

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Cape Girardeau police are searching the area of Woodlawn Avenue for a burglary suspect.

A neighbor alerted police to the burglary Tuesday after seeing two men appear to force their way into the residence. When police arrived, they saw the men near the house holding a green duffel bag, said

Cpl. Adam Glueck, spokesman for the police department.

A plasma television sat on the lawn near the two men, Glueck said.

The two suspects immediately fled the scene. Police were able to take one of them into custody but lost sight of the other, Glueck said.

They continue to comb the area looking for the second man, who may be armed, considering his alleged accomplice had a small handgun in his possession, Glueck said.

St. Vincent's elementary school and Cape Girardeau Central junior high and middle schools were alerted to keep their doors locked until the suspect is caught, Hovis said.

Megla, more than likely the one caught will sing like a canary. Shortly there after he will be caught. Good job Officers good to see theives behind bars.

Boy, these guys have guts! to break in a house in broad daylight with neighbors obviously paying attention or the cops wouldn't have been called! keep the doors locked and get a dog!

Getting a dog won't necessarily help, sosassy. Mine will cower under the bed and maybe even pee because of his extremely low fight drive and very high flight drive. Our cat is meaner, but he doesn't like stranger, so he'll be right there under the bed with the dog, lol.

Grey, hopefully the one caught will sing, not all of them do.

Wow, there's the Angelic Police Side of Greywolf howling instead of the Demonic side on the other article. So bipolar in opinions of the coppers!!! Don't you think arresting them shows how they have TOOOOOO much power, even when it didn't occur in their presence?????? And if the guy is singing, isn't that because the police are using their "POWER" to illicite a confession???

Peggy Sue these kind of "descriptions" of the suspects drive me nuts!They described the clothes he was wearing! Geez don't they think people change clothes and I HOPE nobody leaves the house today wearing clothes that meet that description. DUH...There are LOTS of black men out there that fit his description. What was it? black and 6 feet tall? Hope they leave my husband alone! HA HA

I saw a guy.

Me too, grandma. I think every black male 6 feet tall should wear black pants, black shirts and a brown headwrap today. Lets see if they find him!
