Asian Homeowners Were Targeted in Burglary Ring, Prosecutors Say

Eight men were charged in federal court with burglarizing 50 homes in four states after identifying the residents as Asian.

Investigators interviewed a participant in the burglary ring who told them that the thieves would search the internet for Indian and Chinese restaurants. Their owners were targeted, according to the complaint, “because it was believed that the victims kept large sums of currency and jewelry in their residences.”
