Home Invasions in the Magic City

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The elderly have been victims in two separate crimes recently and the police department says there is a possibility both home invasions may be linked.

Officials with the police department say they have identified a person of interest for the home invasion on the 100 block of 11th Street West. The person of interest is one of the males identified in the photos the police department released last night. A bald man wearing the sunglasses is one of the males identified as a person of interest in recently released photos. In that robbery, police say a 76-year-old female awoke to noise. She says she saw a male in her living room, and that man threw her to the floor.

In a statement released Thursday evening, Billings Police lieutenant Kevin Iffland said the person of interest in the case also allegedly stole a 2001 bronze-colored Buick Park Avenue, with personalized license plate "DLSFAN".

In Billings, robberies in 2013 were around 59 compared to 52 in 2012. Burglaries accounted for 487 for 2013 and 453 for the 2012 period. The police department says these stats are pretty average however they would like to get those numbers down.

Anyone with information on the two cases should call Billings Police Crimestopper at (406)256-6660.
