Naperville police are looking for leads in two home burglaries and a residential burglary attempt they believe are related, authorities said Thursday.

The two burglaries and burglary attempt all took place during the day Monday within about a two-mile area south of 75th Street and west of Greene Valley Forest Preserve, police said.

Sgt. Bill Davis said police think the suspect entered the homes, located on the 300 block of Apple River Drive, the 1300 Block of Auburn Avenue and the 2000 block of Hidden Valley Drive, in a similar way at each location. Jewelry and small electronics were stolen sometime between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., he said.

"We're confident these three are related," Davis said.

At the home where nothing was stolen, a resident on the 300 block of Apple River Drive reported she heard "several loud noises" and saw a man entering through her garage door about 11:50 a.m. Monday, police said.

Davis said the witness helped investigators develop a sketch of the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic or light-skinned black man between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall with a smaller build and no facial hair. He was seen Monday wearing a lightweight brown jacket, and he left the area immediately after the homeowner saw him in a smaller, dark pickup truck described as "boxy."

Naperville police are investigating the burglaries, which Davis said are not necessarily connected to a string of residential burglaries the city saw last fall.

Anyone with information is asked to call Naperville Crime Stoppers at (630) 420-6006. Callers remain anonymous and can receive a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
