Burglaries in the Black Forest Area

April 22, 2015

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is experiencing a rash of daytime residential burglaries in the Black Forest area as far north as County Line Road south to Woodmen Road, with a concentration of cases occurring in the area of Burgess Road, Black Forest Road, and Vollmer Road. Forced entry is being made and small electronics, cash, and firearms are being targeted.

It appears these cases are also connected to burglary cases occurring in southern Douglas County as well. In a Douglas County case off County Line Road, a silver 2005 Pontiac Grand AM was stolen from the garage. That vehicle has not been recovered to date.

We are asking the public to report any suspicious persons or vehicles in this area to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office at 719-390-5555.
