A burglar is suspected of creeping into a residence and stealing a flat screen TV and other items while the homeowner was asleep, police said.
Police responded to the 500 block of Rogers Avenue around 7:19 a.m. April 18, when the homeowner awoke and noticed the missing items.
The homeowner told police that he parked his unlocked car behind the house the night before. The burglar rummaged through the glove box but didn’t take anything.
The burglar then crept into the house overnight, stealing the homeowners’ flat screen TV and Apple iPhone. Also stolen were two checks made out to the homeowner for $1,100 each.
Police said the home did not show any signs of forced entry. Officers explained a phone locator program offered by Apple, but the homeowner immediately responded that his phone did not have the device locator capability.
He was also unsure of his home insurance carrier and left before the report was completed because he wanted to notify his bank, reports said.
The officer contacted Apple about the stolen phone. According to the report, the phone rang but was not picked up.
When police went back a few hours later to tell the homeowner about his phone, he wasn’t home.
