BURLINGTON — An unlocked garage door in a home on Eastbrook Drive allowed a burglar to get inside and steal a pickup truck, police said.
The incident reported about 6:40 a.m. Monday occurred in the 1000 block of Eastbrook Drive while the homeowners were asleep in the home Sunday night or early Monday.
The stolen vehicle has since been recovered, according to Burlington police. The burglar also took keys to two other vehicles.
Burlington police said they are seeking a 23-year-old man from Racine as a suspect in the break-in and car theft.
Police said the suspect had been free on bond on previous charges that included attempted first-degree homicide and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
He was reportedly a passenger in a vehicle stopped by police near the scene of the burglary Sunday night. Police said he ran from the traffic stop, and officers were unable to find him.
