The Crime: The Bismarck Police Department is asking for help from anyone who might have information about a residential burglary. The incident occurred on Wednesday October 23rd sometime between 7:45am and 12:00pm. The victim returned home from work and noticed that things were in disarray and the outside window to the residence was damaged. The resident was missing a Siamese cat, a camera and play jewelry.

However, as officers were investigating this incident a resident of the building approached them and stated that he had observed a male enter his apartment on October 22nd . The subject left when the resident yelled at him. The suspect in that incident is described as Native American male, 30-50 years old and scruffy.

If you have information: If you have information on this crime, please call the Bismarck Police Department at 223-1212. Tell the operator you have information about case number 13-020048. To report information anonymously on this crime or any other crime, call Crime Stoppers at 224-TIPS (224-8477).

• To help prevent burglaries, keep your doors locked at all times. This will serve to protect you from unwanted intrusions whether you are home or not. It only takes a few seconds for someone to enter an unlocked apartment and steal your purse or other valuables. Keep your windows secured as well. If opened slightly for air, make sure the window is secured so as not to open further.
• This is especially true for ground floor apartments.
• Contact the police immediately if an unknown subject enters your apartment
• Get to know the other residents in your apartment building. Neighborhood Crime Watch encourages this activity, which helps to reduce crime in that area.
• Do not invite strangers to your apartment right after you meet them. Do not let anyone into your apartment who you are not expecting or have not identified. If you live in a security building, verify who is at the door. Don’t just “buzz” them through into the building. You compromise everyone’s safety by not verifying identity.
• Report any suspicious or criminal behavior immediately to the Police Department. If you are reporting a crime in progress or other emergency, use 9-1-1. For all other activity or to make a report, call 223-1212.
