Redding Police are investigating two burglaries which occurred during the last week.
On Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:32 a.m., a burglary was reported on Ledgeway Road.
"Someone probably took advantage that the power was out," Police Chief Douglas Fuchs said.
On Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 6:04 a.m., a burglary was reported on Long Ridge Road.
"We're still looking at them," Fuchs said.
Depsite the two burglaries, Fuchs said the Redding Police Department increases its presence during the power outages which plagued Redding for more than a week.
"We try to maintain a high profile," he said. "If we lose that profile we become a target."
Fuchs said officers made a motor vehicle stop on Danbury Road at 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31 after receiving a report of a suspicious vehicle.
"It looks like the officer probably prevented a burglary," Fuchs said, adding the individuals stopped in that incident "have an extensive criminal history."
On Tuesday morning, Police there say the accused allegedly burglarized a house in Redding. Fuchs said he couldn't comment on whether it was one of these two burglaries, as the investigation is ongoing.
