Greene County deputies are investigating a burglary and theft in east Springfield. They say it’s a reminder to make sure your garage door is closed before you go to bed. Thieves look for an easy opportunity to commit crimes.

On May 21 the victim told investigators the garage door had accidentally been left open overnight. The neighborhood is near East Battlefield and South Blackman Road. The home’s security system captured video of a man pulling up in what deputies say appears to be a silver, Kia Sportage. He goes into the garage and leaves holding a car jack worth $200 to $300 dollars.

If you recognize the man or vehicle, call the Greene County Tip Line at (417) 829-6230.
