Homes burglarized in Wichita

WICHITA, Kansas — Police are investigating a string of burglaries in southwest Wichita.

Three homes in the area of South West street and 32nd Street South were targeted late Sunday night and Monday morning.

The residents were home asleep when the burglaries happened.

In each case, the burglar or burglars entered through a window. At one case, a window was left open, in another the window was closed but not locked, and in the third case, the window was locked, but was forced open.

Cash and other items like a laptop computer were taken.

The residents called police Monday morning when they woke up and realized they had been burglarized.

Police say locking windows is key and “pinning” a window, where a nail is installed so a window can’t open all the way, are good ways to deter criminals.

Right now, there are no suspects in the cases. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
