200 block S. Mills St.


A burglar entered a S. Mills St. apartment early Saturday morning through an unlocked front door and made off with two laptop computers and a wallet. The victims are both college students. One had been out Saturday night in downtown Madison and believes he neglected to secure the apartment upon returning home. MPD Burglary Crimes Unit detectives have found most downtown burglars are opportunistic criminals who look to enter residences through unlocked doors and windows.
