Suspects use dog door to enter Aurora home in middle of night

AURORA, Colo. -- A family home in Aurora was burglarized on Monday night and the homeowners say the suspects entered the home through a dog door.

The Gonzalez family realized their home in the Stanford Hills neighborhood was burglarized while they were sleeping when they noticed a few things missing around the home.

Elmer Gonzalez said his wallet in his pants were missing and so were the keys to his 2013 Toyota work truck.

Gonzalez was downstairs sleeping on the couch. He’s been fighting a flu for about a week and did not want to get his wife Samara sick.

The two male home invaders went through his pants that were on the floor in front of him.

The family called the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office and it took a report.

There was no damage to the house, and all of the doors were locked as usual, so the only logical point of entry, Elmer Gonzalez said, must have been the dog door in the kitchen.

Security camera footage of the two perpetrators show they are both young, male and look to be in their early teens.

They also look like they could have easily squeezed through the Gonzalez's dog door.

No one was injured, but Elmer Gonzalez said he’s probably going to get rid of the dog door.
