Two residents in the Center Grove area reported burglary attempts Saturday, and the sheriff said they are likely connected.
Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the 3300 block of Scramble Drive and 1500 block of Heron Ridge Drive. The homes are less than 2 miles from each other.
At about 7:30 p.m., police were called to the home on Scramble Drive, which is located off of Stones Crossing Road in the El Dorado subdivision. A woman told deputies a man had walked into the back yard, looked in the windows and then attempted to open a sliding door on the back of the house. The door was locked, and the man looked in one more time, then left the yard, according to a police report.
