UPPD/HPDPS asking for public’s assistance to identify burglary suspects

July 9, 2019

Investigators with the University Park Police Department (UPPD) and the Highland Park Department of Public Safety (HPDPS) are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects involved in an ongoing series of residential burglaries.
Dating back to November 2018, UPPD and HPDPS investigators believe these suspects are responsible for at least 13 residential burglaries.  Eight cases have occurred in University Park, and five have taken place in Highland Park.  These burglaries have all occurred during the middle of the night when residents were home, and the suspects found easy access to money and credits cards after entering unlocked households.  To date, the suspects have left the homes involved and our neighborhoods undetected. 
If you can assist UPPD with information about any of these suspects, or if you think you may have seen any of these suspects in University Park, you are urged to contact UPPD Lt. John Ball at 214-987-5354.

Highland Park DPS is urging their residents to call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-373-8477. Callers may submit tips to Crime Stoppers anonymously. Tips leading to an arrest and indictment may be eligible for a cash reward from Crime Stoppers.
Residents are reminded to lock homes and vehicles and use home security systems at all times.  It is also important to keep money, jewelry and other valuables out of plain sight.  Residents who see suspicious activity, regardless of the time of day, are urged to call 911 immediately.
