HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. -- A woman arrested for burglary last month allegedly crawled into a home through a pet door, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Mackenzie Mavis, 20, was arrested on Nov. 29 after a Highlands Ranch homeowner allegedly caught her burglarizing the home and then chased her down on foot, police said. Police believe Mavis slipped into the home via a pet door.
Mavis stands charged with burglary, crimes against an at-risk adult and other crimes.
Mavis may have used the tactic on as many as a dozen other victims, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said. Anyone who believes they may have been burglarized was asked to make a report by calling 303-660-7500.AlertMe
