Entrance is made to the home in the late evening or early morning, with most being elderly resident’s homes. The homeowner is unaware that their home has been burglarized, until they notice missing cash and stolen jewelry and sometimes notice forced entry to their residence. In some cases, the elderly resident was at home sleeping during the burglary.
Anyone who may have seen or heard anything about the persons involved are urged to call the Mt. Vernon Police Department at 242-2131 or Jefferson County Crime Stoppers at 242-8477 (TIPS).
The $500 cash reward is based on the arrest and conviction of the burglars.
