Davenport Police may have caught the suspects responsible for a string of burglaries in Davenport and Bettendorf.
Davenport police arrested two men trying to use an ATM card reported stolen from a home on East 44th Court.
Ronald Lam Junior,28, of Davenport and Justin Butler, 22, of Bettendorf are charged in connection with that burglary back on August 6th.
Both Davenport and Bettendorf Police said they've had a string of similar burglaries recently, and are working together to see if Lam and Butler played a part in any of them.
Bettendorf police said suspects are getting in through unlocked doors or cutting screens and crawling through open windows at night while people are asleep in some residential neighborhoods.
Davenport PD said they have a tedious job ahead and will be investigating over the next several weeks to see if they can build a case, and recover stolen items.
"We're very comfortable that their the individuals responsible for the other 15 or 16 that Davenport and Bettendorf was experiencing, but our main purpose was to get them off the street, so that they weren't victimizing somebody else and we had the opportunity to solving these other cases, and connecting them to it," said Major Don Schaeffer, Davenport PD.
Police are also asking residents to be vigilant by double checking that your homes are secured.
Davenport's Crime Prevention Team can come out to survey your home to make sure it's safe.
If you are interested in having police take a look at your home or business, you can call Davenport PD to set up an appointment.
Two men who have been arrested for a Davenport burglary may be connected to other, similar crimes.
Davenport Police, working with Bettendorf Police, arrested Ronald Lam Jr., 28, and Justin Butler, 22, on Wednesday. The arrests were in connection with a burglary to a residence in the 2900 block of East 44th Street Court back on August 6th.
The officers were able to serve a search warrant that they say netted them evidence connecting the two men to the burglary.
Both cities have experienced a number of similar burglaries recently, and were working together to connect them to suspects. Police continue to investigate to find out if they can connect Lam and Butler to the other recent burglaries.
