Suspects sought in string of recent smash-and-grab burglaries

Police say there have been 14 reports of burglaries or attempted burglaries from Aurora businesses in the past four days.

AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department (APD) has released photos of a vehicle they say was involved in a series of recent burglaries. 

Police said the black Lincoln MKT pictured below has been connected to a string of smash-and-grab style burglaries of ATMs and cash registers. 

APD said it's a metro-wide issue, but Aurora businesses have been targeted with 14 reported burglaries or attempted burglaries in the last four days. 

Now, APD and the Aurora Reward Fund are offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. 

Anyone who sees the vehicle is asked to stay away from it and call 911 immediately. Those with information that can help police with their investigation can call APD at 303-739-6932.
