14th Street Resident Scares Off Burglar

A resident in the 14th Street area scared a suspected burglar away from his home Friday night, just months after the same home was burglarized while the family slept.

A neighbor says the burglar removed the screens from the home’s windows in middle of the night, but with the windows locked, he decided to try the door.

Upon hearing noises of someone by the window, one of the family members went downstairs to see what was happening, and heard noise as if someone was attempting to open a door.

The resident banged on the door and the burglar ran off, the neighbor says.

In July, the same home was burglarized when a burglar entered through a bathroom window, and made off with cash and other items while the family slept. TLS-24 A/B.

  1. Chaim,
    Relax!! One guy’s gonna tell LPD, where are you, another LCSW, where are you. No matter how many patrols you have, it’s impossible to stop every crime.
    And much of the burglaries in this town are more directly attributed to a different question; WHERE ARE YOU?! For years people have left doors, windows and cars unlocked. This was and is an open invitation to these crooks. Now we suffer from it.

  2. This happenned to me a few summers ago. Its very, uh, not geshmak. Btw, I checked my mezuzos recently. ALL my outdoor ones were possul. The sofer told me, NO outdoor holders are foolproof. Plz check urs every 2-3 yrs. Thanx. DB
