Naperville police are looking for help after two homes were burglarized within a one mile radius earlier this month in southeast Naperville.
Police said a home was broken into Monday, Aug. 5 between 10 a.m. and noon in the 200 block of DiLorenzo Drive. Then, just days later another burglary occurred one mile away in the 600 block of Alexandria Court. on Aug. 9 between 7:15 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Thieves stole personal property from both homes as well as a "very heavy safe" from the home on Alexandria Drive, police said.
Police believe thieves were scouting the southeast Naperville neighborhood for several days before the burglaries and that a vehicle was used to flee the area.
Police are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Naperville Crime Stoppers at 630-420-6006.
