$20,000 Worth Of Items Stolen From Home

A couple's car and thousands of dollars worth of possessions were stolen in a burglary, and now the Douglas County Sheriff's Department is asking the public for help identifying suspects.

"I don't know why our house was chosen but it just makes you sad that someone would do that," said the victim, who asked not to be identified.

The victims were away at the time--one in another state and the other at work. Now they fear that it was an inside job.

"I feel like we have our blinds closed all the time now. I love the windows in this house and I like to have the sunshine in, but we're kind of fearful these days," said the victim.

The couple has since taken extra precaution to feel safe in their home. They installed new security cameras, and replaced windows and locks.

Trevor Thrasher, a home safety expert at 88 Tactical, encourages homeowners to invest in securing their homes.

“If I was a burglar how would I break into my house and there’s usually one or two things that are going to be pretty obvious to the homeowner and then they should focus on those one or two things and correct them," said Thrasher.
