Police received a report of an aggravated burglary in progress at an address in the 1500 block of 27th Street. The caller reported they believed that someone had made entry into the house through a window. After speaking further with dispatchers, the caller determined that the alleged intruder was a family member. Most officers attached to the call, returned to service once they learned it was a family member. The call was downgraded to a trespassing and no arrests were reported.
Also this morning, Eudora Police were investigating several self storage unit burglaries in the 500 block of E 15th Street. There was not an exact number of units given over the radio. However, the officer was out at that scene for nearly an hour.
