MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. — The Manitou Springs Police Department (MSPD) is asking for the public’s help regarding a suspect who burglarized and vandalized two businesses in Downtown Manitou Springs.
At approximately 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, one business in the 900 block of Manitou Avenue was burglarized, and soon thereafter, at approximately 11:00 p.m., one business in the 100 block of Canon Avenue was also burglarized.
In total, police estimates $6,000 in damages.
The MSPD has reason to believe that these two burglaries are connected. The suspect description is a 5’10” white male with a thin build seen wearing a black beanie, a white t-shirt, white and black Nike Air Max 95’s, and white pants at around 10:30PM in the Downtown Manitou Springs area.
