October 11, 2023
Police in three west metro cities suspect a connection among three unsolved residential burglaries within a week that netted hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry and other pricey items.
The break-ins occurred in late August, with homes hit in Eden Prairie, Minnetonka and Golden Valley, according to a court filing this week in Hennepin County.
Minnetonka police said in a search warrant affidavit that they suspect a burglary in their city on Aug. 29, another in Eden Prairie on Aug. 30 and a third in Golden Valley on Aug. 31 "are associated as they occurred within days of one another, and all three had similar modus operandi."
