A pair of Hinsdale homes were burglarized Tuesday night between 5:45 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., according to a release from the Hinsdale Police Department.

The first burglary took place at a home in the 300 block of Forest Road that was broken into via a rear patio door between 5:45 p.m. and 7 p.m., a time frame during which the home was unoccupied. Jewelry was taken from the home's master bedroom.

The second incident took place in the 200 block of North Washington Street at approximately 7:25 p.m. That home, also unoccupied, was broken into via a basement window. One Apple laptop computer, one iPad, and several pieces of jewelry were taken from an office and master bedroom in the home.

"There was an alarm activation at the second residence which prompted us to respond," Hinsdale deputy chief Mark Wodka said in an email. "Offender(s) were gone upon our arrival."

Because of the proximity and similar time frame, Wodka said the department believes the two burglaries are related and were committed by the same offender or offenders.

Residents in the area who may have any video surveillance footage from a private residential video surveillance system in the area are encouraged to contact the 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.
