MONROE - The Monroe Police Department is looking for a man who may have been involved in a burglary that took place Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.

The man was described as a white male in his 30s, with a slender build and short trimmed dark hair. He was described as wearing a tan and blue plaid shirt or jacket, unbuttoned, with an exposed white T-shirt and dark pants.

In a news release Friday, Chief Fred Kelley said police responded to a possible burglary at about 8 a.m. Wednesday in the 900 block of 4th Street.

The homeowner noticed a door to an attached garage had been forced open.

At the time, officers weren't sure if the person or persons still were on the property. Officers searched the garage and the area but didn't find anyone. Officers and the homeowner weren't able to find anything missing from the garage.

A neighbor told officers they saw the man near the residence and provided a description.

Kelley said people are reminded to keep doors and windows locked, especially when they aren't at home, and lock vehicles at all times.

"It is also valuable to be good neighbors and call the police if something suspicious is noticed," he said.

Anyone with information can contact the Monroe Police Department at 329-2400 or Green County Crime Stoppers at (800) 422-7463.
