Smash and grab burglary on Southwest Side, Madison police say
A burglar used a large rock to smash a glass patio door early Thursday morning to gain access to a Southwest Side home, taking items from the home before fleeing.
The burglary happened at about 1:30 a.m. on Brindley Circle, Madison police said.
“The homeowner discovered a briefcase, wallet and purse missing from the home following the break-in,” said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
Shortly after officers responded to the scene, the victim’s credit cards were already being used by the burglar.
