Burglar takes gun, watches, cereal from Cd’A house

Associated Press

COEUR d’ALENE — Maybe he’s a serial cereal burglar?

Police in Coeur d’Alene are investigating after someone took a loaded nine millimeter semi-automatic gun, two $500 watches and three boxes of breakfast cereal from a house last Friday night. Officers believe the suspect reached through a doggie door to unlock the back door.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports a witness reported seeing a man emerge from the backyard of the house drinking what appeared to be a bottle of orange juice.

The suspect is described as a white male, 40-45 years old, between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall and weighing between 150 to 170 pounds. He was unshaven with gray or blond hair.

The missing cereal included boxes of Cheerios, Raisin Bran and “frosted squares.”
