The Caledonia Police Department is warning residents about a series of burglaries and occupied nighttime home invasions that happened in August and September on the east side of the village.

The suspects are targeting secluded homes that have trees and shrubbery around them. Forcing entry into the homes, firearms are being stolen. But there have also been two home invasions where residents woke up to find a suspect in the home. In another case, the home owner heard noises and they found drawers and storage areas disturbed, according to a press release by the Caledonia Police Department.

The burglaries were at residents located within an area bordered by Charles St. to the west, the Village of Wind Point on the east, 5 1/2 Mile Road to the north and 4 Mile Road to the south.

Police will have extra patrols in the area. They are asking residents to call the Caledonia Police Department’s detective bureau at (262) 835-4423 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (262) 636-9330; via web at, or text message: RACS to 274637 (crimes).
