Wausau police investigate rash of burglaries

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The Wausau Police Department is investigating a recent rash of similar burglaries on the city's east side in the past 10 days.

Investigators tell us the back door of each of three homes was forced open, shades inside were pulled down and the homes were ransacked.The thieves "spent a considerable amount of time going through every cabinet, every drawer and even the attics," apparently in a search for money or items that could be converted to cash, Capt. Greg Hagenbucher said Wednesday.

Investigators say a 2001 gold Nissan Altima was taken from a garage of a home in the 1200 block of Washington Street.
The gold vehicle has a Wisconsin license plate: 888-MKT.

Two Sony flat screen TVs and a small amount of cash were taken from a home on the 2100 block of Lillie Street, according to police.

At a home in the 800 block of Ross Avenue, a World War II German sword was taken along with a small amount of change, police said.

Police do not have a suspect at this time.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the Wausau Police Department at (715) 261-7814.
