A pickup was stolen, an unlocked home was burglarized and more than 20 cars were broken into June 20 in The Meadows and Castle Oaks neighborhoods, according to information from the Castle Rock Police Department.

It's thought that three to five suspects broke car windows and entered unlocked vehicles between 2 and 5 a.m. The stolen truck was a 2005 F150 four-door. Items taken included three handguns, as well as wallets and electronics such as iPods.

Police said a video from a resident shows a suspect looking into a Ford truck. Another video shows the stolen Ford F150 and another vehicle of interest, a mid-sized sedan. Police say the videos indicate the suspect is a bearded black male in his 20s.

The videos and photos of one suspect are posted on the town's Facebook page, facebook.com/CRgov.

Police are recommending that residents lock their homes and vehicles at night and that they close their garage doors. And valuables, especially firearms, should not be left inside unattended vehicles.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Castle Rock Police Detective Jason Maes at 303-663-6100.
