Four SK homes burgled last week

At least four burglaries to South Kitsap homes were reported last week, two of which involved expensive tools and dirt bikes taken from a pair of homes in the Long Lake area on the same night.

According to the Kitsap County SheriffÂ’s Office, two Long Lake-area residents reported burglaries of thousands of dollars worth of motorcycles and tools that occurred sometime overnight on March 15.

The first victim, a resident of the 7000 block of Bayview Drive, told deputies that sometime during the night someone had broken into his garage and taken two dirt bikes and several tools.

He reported the stolen items as one bike worth $4,000 and another worth $1,000, along with $750 worth of tools that included a cordless saw and drill, nailer and a chainsaw.

Another man, a resident of the 6000 block of Ebbert Drive, reported that during the same night, someone broke into the garage area of his newly constructed home and took three saws, a power painter and two boxes of tile.

The third burglary reportedly occurred at a home near the Burley Lagoon, on the 13000 block of Olympic Drive.

The victim told deputies someone had broken into her bedroom, possibly the same night as the other two robberies, and stolen an electric guitar.

She said she believed the suspect entered through the bedroom window, as a chair was still sitting under it.

The victim estimated that the instrument was worth at least $500.

The fourth burglary occurred near Yukon Harbor. The victim, a resident of the 3000 block of Harvey Street, said someone had broken into his shed while he was on vacation.

Missing from the shed were several tools, including a saw, a drill, a table saw and a drill motor, totaling about $400.

No arrests have been made.
