Two burglaries occurred Sunday in residential areas on opposite sides of the city, Harker Heights police reported.

“Both cases were forced entries where the suspect gained entry through the rear of the residence,” Sgt. Roosevelt Wilson Jr. said.

An iPad, three television sets, two cameras, a laptop, two gaming systems and video games were stolen in a burglary reported at 6 p.m. Sunday in the 400 block of Prospector Trail. Another burglary was reported just before 7 p.m. in the 2000 block of Indian Trail. About 45 DVDs were stolen, Wilson said.

Police are not releasing suspect information, but Wilson said the burglaries are not related.

Other thefts were reported last week in Heights. A cellphone was reported stolen at 11 a.m. March 20 in the 900 block of Indian Trail, and more than 80 prescription pills were reported stolen sometime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. March 21 in the 200 block of East Cardinal Lane. Another theft was reported at 3:30 p.m. March 22 in the 220 block of East Central Texas Expressway.

Several thousand dollars were stolen in two separate incidents on Sunday. The first theft occurred between 6 and 9 p.m. in the 1600 block of Harley Drive. The second was reported at 11:50 p.m. in the 100 block of Central Texas Expressway.

Police also reported three separate cases of criminal mischief where vehicles were damaged. The first incident was reported at 8 a.m. March 19, and two others were reported at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. March 23.

“When that happens, it’s normally a personal attack on somebody,” Wilson said.
