As a rash of burglaries continue in Indianola, police are offering a one-thousand dollar reward for information leading to the thieves. Since January, the city has seen at least 15-burglaries---seven in the past two weeks. Police say these are crimes of opportunity. The thieves find house keys left in ignitions, or enter homes through unlocked doors. Sara Mundy was just sitting at home watching TV this week when she came face to face with the guy who may be responsible for the burglaries. "I was just sitting here and we were watching TV it was about 11:30, 11:45 and all the sudden this door just kinda pushed open and I heard somebody yell oh..kind of a bad word and ran off."
Mundy's husband scared the would-be burglar off with a baseball bat. Police say so far the thieves have only taken money, ignoring electronics and jewelry. If you have any information, please call Indianola police at (515) 961-9400.
