Guns, cash reportedly stolen in string of burglaries in Meeteetse

Park County sheriff's deputies are investigating eight burglaries that occurred Sunday night or Monday morning in Meeteetse.

The thief or thieves broke through the front door of the Meeteetse Visitors Center, where they stole cash, and swiped three firearms from two different vehicles, sheriff's office spokesman Lance Mathess said in a Monday afternoon news release. Five other vehicles were apparently entered and searched by the thieves, but it appeared nothing was taken from them, Mathess said. All the vehicles were unlocked.

Sheriff Scott Steward is cautioning residents to be alert, report any suspicious activity and to secure their residences and vehicles at all times.

Each of the burglaries took place in a one-block area around South Street, Water Avenue, Warren Street and Park Avenue (a.k.a. Wyo. Highway 290), Mathess said. The sheriff's office got the first report at around 7:30 a.m. Monday.

Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to contact the Park County Communications Center at 307-527-8700. Mathess said all information will remain confidential.
