Burglaries Reported

Two Lake Avenue residents reported coming home to find their homes burglarized on Friday.

One resident said he came home to find a back hall light on and his dining room ransacked.

The thief reportedly took a draw of sterling silver from a dining room bureau.

Jewelry, including earrings and a diamond ring, were taken from the second floor. Two rooms on the second floor were also ransacked.

The other resident also came home to a ransacked home. A gold wedding ring and black wooden cigar humidor were stolen, according to police.


Car Break-in

Police responded to Oak Street about a car break-in.

An officer found that the car’s trunk was damaged and there were pry marks that caused moderate damage to the bumper area.

Many of the items in the trunk were left in the backseat. The car next to the vehicle was also entered.

On the same day, another person at the same complex reported another car break-in. Items were taken and the car was “rifled through.”

The vehicle’s hood was also ajar and there was damaged to the hood.

A car charger, a USB adapter and two power adapters were taken.  


Telephone Scam

A Newton resident reported a telephone scam on Saturday.

On three different occasions, she transferred money via Western Union to Greece believing that a tenant was in an accident and needed money.

She contacted the tenant who told her she did not go to Greece.


Stolen Wallet

Police responded to Marshalls about a reported larceny on Friday.

The customer said she was inside a dressing room trying on items when she realized she left her handbag near the shoe department.

She went to get the bag, but the top was unzipped and her wallet was missing. The wallet included her driver’s license, debit/credit cards and cash.
