Authorities in Spring Valley Village are urging residents to be on alert after two burglaries in the area.

On March 15, Spring Valley Village police say between 11:15am and 11:45am, officers responded to two residential alarms within minutes of each other, one at a residence in the 8400 block of Winningham Lane and the other at a residence in the 1400 block of Cedarbrook Drive.

Upon arrival in both cases, officers found that an unknown suspect or suspects had forced entry into the residences.

In one case, it does not appear that any items were taken. In the other incident, valuables were removed from the home.
