Oshkosh police investigate numerous burglaries


Oshkosh police are investigating numerous thefts over the weekend involving businesses, a home and cars, many of them around North Main Street.

Cash was taken from the till of a business on the 500-block of North Main Street either Friday or Saturday. Then Sunday police received reports of 3 burglaries or attempted burglaries overnight:

An attempted break-in on the 500-block of Pearl Avenue. The person wasn't able to enter the building.

Cash was taken from a business on the 500-block of North Main Street. Surveillance video shows a person about 5'10", 220 pounds, wearing a gray sweatshirt, sweat pants, a hood, mask and gloves. The burglary happened Sunday morning at 12:48 A.M.

Electronics and cash were taken from a home on the 1100-block of High Avenue.

Additionally, police say six vehicle break-ins were reported Saturday morning -- two on the 1600-block of Burdick Avenue and four on North Main Street. Police say a stereo system, GPS units, sets of golf clubs, and loose change were taken.

Police say many of these were "crimes of opportunity." They say reporting suspicious incidents or people can help prevent or solve crimes, and so can removing valuables from vehicles and locking the doors.
