Burglary reports spike in the month of June

STATUS: CLOSED

The Ogallala Police Department needs your help in solving a rash of recent burglaries. 

In late May and throughout the month of June Ogallala has seen a significant spike in the number of burglaries to business reported.  These burglaries are all very similar in nature and are believed to be related.  In most of the burglaries reported, the suspect forced entry to a door, and only cash was stolen.

There is some security video available for the public to view at the Ogallala Police Department Facebook page.  In the video, the suspect appears to be a White male, thin in stature, and wearing a mask.

We encourage businesses to take extra precautions in protecting themselves against burglaries at this time.  We also ask that any individual or business that may have surveillance video of anything suspicious contact the Ogallala Police Department.
