DENVER (AP) — Colorado police say they have arrested three suspects in a string of 2019 residential burglaries targeting the homes of Asian business owners. Police say a total of 26 families were burglarized in Colorado and Wyoming in the first seven months of 2019. The total loss is estimated to be as much as $1.4 million.

Authorities said Tuesday that Fort Collins police detectives began an investigation known as “Operation Daylight” and discovered that three males and one female carried out the burglaries as members of an organized criminal group with ties to South America.
