CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said burglars are hitting homes on weekdays during the daytime.
The Sheriff's Office sent an alert to the community that said the burglars are kicking or forcing open front and back doors.
The burglaries are happening in a three-mile area of Centennial along Smoky Hill Road between Chambers and Orchard roads.
"We really at this point don't have any suspects or any leads," said Capt. Louie Perea, with the Arapahoe County Sherifs' Office.
In one case, he said the burglars broke into a car at a local shopping center, stole the garage door opener and found the home address.
"The burglars broke into the home while the person was shopping," he said.
The crime alert told neighbors if they see a burglary, call the sheriff's office, do not make any contact or take any personal action.
Sheryl Hunt’s home is one of 19 homes burglarized in the area during the last two months.
"When I walked in, I happened to be on the phone with my older daughter and said, 'Oh my God, somebody's been in my house.' And she said, 'Get out. Call 911,'" said Hunt.
The burglars took her television, cash and sentimental jewelry.
"I had a ring that was my mother's," she said. "So, that's the No. 1 thing I am most sad to have lost."
But she said she’s also lost some peace of mind, so she had this piece of advice: "I've sent out e-mails to a lot of my local friends and neighbors to just certainly be sure you have your doors locked."
