Two vehicles were stolen and many items were stolen in two separate home burglaries where the homeowners remained asleep, Detective Lieutenant Paul Daly tells TLS. The incidents occurred early yesterday morning on Dena Court and on Cabinfield Circle, when the rear window screens of the basement apartments were cut and entry was made through the – apparently unlocked – windows, Daly said.
Without indicating which items were taken from which homes, Daly says the stolen items included cameras, jewelry, cordless phones, a microwave and other items.
The brazen thief – who police have reason to believe is the same suspect in both incidents – then walked out the front door and stole the homeowner’s vehicle, Daly said.
Both incidents ocurred between the hours of 2-6 a.m.
No vehicles were recovered.
In another incident Daly says, a resident on Gefen Street woke up to the banging on his rear basement window at approximately 2:30 a.m., and when the resident got up to investigate, the perpetrator fled.
The resident tells police, he spotted a black man running from his home.
