Raleigh, N.C. — Guns, gaming systems and laptop computers were among the items stolen from homes in Raleigh’s Southpark neighborhood during a burglary spree last week.
On May 15, a MacBook Pro, valued at $1,300, was taken from a home in the 300 block of Worth Street just before 2 p.m. and several guns were stolen from a home in the 400 block of Worth Street at about 5:10 p.m.
On May 17, an $800 watch and an Xbox One game console were stolen from a home in the 300 block of Bledsoe Avenue just before 4:30 p.m. and a MacBook laptop and airsoft shotgun were taken from a home in the 400 block of Greene Lane at about 5 p.m.
Several residents who were targeted or live near a home that was the target of one of the burglaries said they believe the crimes are the work of a group of teens or young adults.
Many victims said they walked in on the burglars in their homes or were in the home sleeping during the thefts and broken windows appeared to be a common entry method for the burglars.
