DetailsThe MPD has identified one of two daytime burglars after the teens got inside a downtown apartment building and began looking for unlocked doors yesterday afternoon. They stole electronics and other items from several residents. One victim spotted the identified suspect while the 16-year-old was still inside Hub Madison, 437 N. Frances St. The victim knew this was a burglar as the teen was wearing the victim's backpack. The resident gave chase, and the teen dropped the backpack which contained several stolen items including the victim's laptop computer. The teen is at large, but has been identified by MPD thanks to surveillance images. Officers are also trying to ID a second teen. Additional electronics and other items stolen by the burglars have not been recovered.
