BELLEVUE - The search is on for five suspected burglars who were found last night in a Bellevue home when the homeowner came home.
The men were apparently trying to steal items from the home on the 2500 block of Hillside Heights Drive.
After running a few errands, a Bellevue man came home around 8:30 to find an unexpected visitor in his kitchen, another in his living room and shortly after, three more running down his stairs and out his front door.
"Obviously they were as surprised as he was when he entered the house," said Captain David Konrath with the Brown County Sheriff's Department. "They dropped what they had in their hands, in their possession, and just fled."
The man who found the people in his house didn't want to talk on camera, but he did tell FOX 11 it certainly had his heart racing.
"You come back home and you find five individuals within your residence, anybody would be a little bit unnerved by that," said Konrath.
The men broke a window to get in. The homeowner told FOX 11 they did take some jewelry and money.
"I think it's a very safe neighborhood in general, well cared for and well respected by all the people who live here," said Kevin Voge, a Bellevue neighbor.
Safety officials say home invasions can happen anywhere and at anytime. Green Bay Police report the city's east side has also had several burglaries in the past week.
"People are very concerned about their neighbor's property," said Voge. "It's not uncommon for people to say I saw somebody by your house."
If you do come across an intruder, like what happened in Bellevue, authorities say you shouldn't confront them. Police say just try to get the best description possible.
"What they are taking from the residence definitely is not worth your life," said Konrath. "Let us take care of it."
The suspects are believed to be in their teens and left the area in a red Ford Focus.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Brown County Sheriff's Department at (920) 448-6187.
