Lafayette police confirmed what a homeowner suspected Monday after they returned to their home in the 1200 block of Quandt Road and found that someone had gotten there ahead of them.
A search of the home determined that the thief or thieves entered after forcing open a rear French door and conducting a “limited search” of the residence – leaving with a jewelry box they found in the master bedroom.
Crime Scene Investigators searched the area for evidence and were able to collect several items that will be processed by the crime lab to identify the suspect(s). Investigators believe the suspects burglarized the home between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
