MUSCATINE, Iowa – The Muscatine Police Department is investigating an overnight incident involving an attempted burglary where an individual or individuals attempted to enter a residence while knowing the occupants to be home.

The department is encouraging residents to keep exterior doors and windows shut and locked for the time being. Please keep an eye on your neighborhoods and promptly report suspicious activity and/or individuals. Exterior lighting, cameras, and keeping shrubbery cut back always helps add to the degree of safety around the home.

Those areas are Lord Street, East 4th Street, Holly Street, and Laurel Street along with Park Avenue and Fairview Avenue in this general area.
