Shortly after 11:00 AM on Friday, June 5th, a resident in the 200 block of East Haven saw a male walk across his front lawn and knock on the door. The resident ignored the knock and went about his business. Moments later, the resident heard footsteps inside the home and opened an interior door to see the suspect in a hallway. The suspect immediately fled out the front door. Officers were unable to locate the suspect who was described as a male Hispanic in his 20’s wearing dark clothing. The suspect had removed a screen from a front window that was partially open and entered through the open window. There was no loss.
This incident serves as a good reminder to stay alert when home and windows or doors are left open. Burglary suspects may knock on a door in an attempt to see if anyone is home. Don’t automatically open your door. Do ask who is there and ask what there business is if you don’t recognize them. Keep a phone near by in the event you need to dial 9-1-1.
