Residential Burglary

Incident Date

300 block N. Hamilton St.


Female, age 20, Madison


A 20-year-old downtown resident contacted the MPD last night after realizing her purse had been stolen from her unlocked apartment while she and her roommates were at home. The victim said she left it near the front door, and someone must have opened the door, reached in, and grabbed the purse sometime between 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. The MPD recommends keeping doors locked, even when you are at home.
