Cedar Park Police Search For Two Burglars

Updated: Tuesday, December 3 2013, 06:06 PM CST

Police in Cedar Park are searching for two burglars who robbed a home Monday in the Ranch at Brushy Creek neighborhood.

We spoke with the homeowner who says his wife and niece walked in on the burglary in progress at about 10:30 p.m.

The man who only wanted to be identified as "John" says, "My niece is the first one that came in and she just heard something drop to the ground and two guys ran out the door.  I'm not sure how they knew we weren't home but they were in there for a long time. They had opened all the drawers and they rummaged through the house for quite a while."

Police do not have a good description of the suspects.                                                                                                                                           

"We responded very quickly to this one.  We had units on the scene within just a couple of minutes, called in our canine units and got the assistance of DPS and their helicopter," Cedar Park Police Chief Sean Mannix says.

Crews searched the neighborhood for hours.

So far, still no arrests.

But Chief Mannix says people need to be aware, especially during the holiday season.  He says if you ever walk in on a burglar, the most important thing is to keep yourself safe.

"Remove yourself from the property because you don’t know how many people are involved. Just because you see one doesn’t mean there is not 2, or 3 or 4," says Mannix.

As for John, he says the burglars got in by busting in their back door.  He's getting ready to install an alarm system in his home.
