Televisions a hot item in Sun Valley

The Sun Valley Police Department is investigating the recent thefts of four large LCD (liquid crystal display) television sets from two homes in Elkhorn.

The most recent theft was reported on Oct. 30 when a glass sliding door was broken at a home on Elkhorn Road and three television sets were stolen, Sun Valley Assistant Police Chief Mike Crawford said Monday.

Crawford said the theft occurred the previous evening. He said the value of the televisions is approximately $5,000.

Crawford said the theft may be related to an earlier television heist at a nearby home on Skyline Drive. That set, valued at $1,300, was stolen while the home was vacant between July 28 and Oct. 26. Crawford said investigators suspect the set was stolen close to the end of that period because of the home's close proximity to the other home that was robbed.

"There was no sign of forced entry," Crawford said of the home on Skyline Drive. "As far as we know, the residence was locked."

The theft was reported on Oct. 27.
