Hinsdale Police are asking residents to check their private video surveillance systems for possible images of a residential burglary that occurred the morning of May 1.
At approximately 10 a.m., Hinsdale Police investigated a residential burglary in the 300 block of Radcliffe Way.
Police say the incident occurred between 8:30 and 10 a.m. when no one was home. Forced entry was made through a rear window of the home. Jewelry and cash were taken from a bedroom inside the home.
Residents in the area who have any video from home security systems are encouraged to call the Hinsdale Police Investigations Division at 630-789-7070. Home surveillance videos have aided investigators in previous investigations and increase the likelihood of identifying and apprehending burglary suspects.
Earlier this year Hinsdale Police introduced “Block Watch,” a volunteer program where residents can register their own outdoor surveillance cameras with the police department. Should a crime occur in a particular neighborhood, police will asked residents to check their camera systems for images that may aid in an investigation.
Residents with home surveillance systems can register for Block Watch by completing an online registration form. Participation in the program is confidential.
