investigating two residential aggravated burglaries that occurred during the early morning
hours of July 6th 2012. Both homes were occupied at the time the suspect entered. The
burglaries occurred on JC Rogers Drive and Country Club Circle (both on the west side
of Wamego). The suspect is described as a male 5’06” to 5’09” and might have a dark
complexion. The suspect description is vague due to the time of day when the witness
saw him. In both incidents the occupants of the homes confronted the suspect and he fled
the area on foot.
We believe the suspect is targeting higher income homes. There are no signs of forced
entry in either home; it is believed the doors were left unlocked. The suspect will open
gates into the back yard then enter the home through unlocked back doors. The suspect
did damage a screened in porch to gain access to the back door.
The Wamego Police Department is urging people to make sure their homes and vehicles
Any one with information on these burglaries is asked to contact the Wamego Police
Department (785) 456-9553 or the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office (785) 457-
