Police searching for Woodlawn Avenue burglary suspect
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.
