Officers are searching for a robber who bashed the front door of a Palos Heights home and grabbed jewelry and a television, police said Friday.
A person wearing work boots shouldered the front door of a home on Thursday in the 12100 block of Flambeau Drive, said. A 42-inch Samsung TV was taken from the wall of the master bedroom, as was a pillow case that the robber used to carry out jewelry from a box left on the bed.
The thief then left through the garage door, police said.
Two witnesses told police they saw a white pickup truck with ladder rack frames and two men inside driving through the area several times. They described the driver as an olive-skinned man wearing a bright orange T-shirt. The passenger also had olive-colored skin.
The same truck and driver were seen backed up to the garage of the burglarized home.
Palos Park police actually made the Friday announcement of the Flambeau Drive burglary.
