Burglars target Chesterfield County neighborhood

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Residents of a Chesterfield neighborhood said they have been a target of burglars. Multiple homes have been ransacked and robbed with no arrests and no suspects.

Chesterfield Police said there have been five reported burglaries from July 24 through July 31 in the Foxberry neighborhood, a place residents describe as "quiet."

Police said the crimes are similar, in that the burglar or burglars break into the rear of the home and steal electronics, jewelry and other valuables.

"They ransacked my room," said Foxberry resident Fallon Rosario. "Clothes everywhere, my mattress was flipped over so they could look for money. It was just horrible."

Rosario had just moved to Foxberry when someone broke into her home. She estimates the burglars stole at least $7,000 worth of valuables.

What's worse, the single mother said, the burglars stole from her six-year-old son.

"I work hard every day for what I have," said Rosario. "To supply for my son, and they pretty much came in and took everything that I have."

Meanwhile, Rosario's neighbors are also on edge.

"I think people in the neighborhood need to come together," said Rosario's neighbor Becca Mejia.

Chesterfield Police has increased patrols in the area. Anyone with information about any of these incidents is encouraged to call Crime Solvers at 748-0660.
