MADISON (WKOW) — The Madison Police Department said a woman was able to scare three masked men out of her home early Friday morning.
A 35-year-old woman was watching a storm roll in at about 1:30 a.m. at her house in the 2700 block of Tuscon Trail. That’s when she noticed three masked men, dressed in black, in her kitchen.
The woman yelled at the burglars which scared them away. They got into a white sedan that was waiting outside.
Officers said it appears that the suspects were able to get into the house from items that were left in an unlocked car. They say this is a common way for criminals to strike. MPD is asking community members to lock-up and report any suspicious activity.
