On Tuesday, Oct. 1, police were called to Washington Circle for a report of a breaking and entering. The reporting party said he left for Connecticut at about 7:30 p.m. on September 30 and returned home Tuesday at about 4:30 p.m. to discover that his home was broken into and several items were stolen.
Police noticed several doors and cabinets open as they walked through the house. The resident said when he left for his trip, the doors were all closed.
The man’s ex-wife arrived at the home and said that earlier in the day she arrived to pick up her mail and found that all of the doors and cabinets were open, so she called her ex-husband to tell him that she believed it to be suspicious.
Officers asked neighbors if they had seen anything suspicious, and one of them said that at about 8 a.m. she saw a white male in his forties walking around the neighborhood. She had never seen the man in the area before.
Among the items reported stolen from the home were a gray laptop, a video camera, an Xbox 360 system, an unknown amount of Xbox games and an iPhone 3G. Also reported stolen was $1,500 in Australian currency.
A report was filed on the incident.
