Bur­glar steals TVs, cash while res­i­dents sleep

Newark Post - - Police Blotter -

Some­one snuck into a Not­ting­ham Green home while the res­i­dents were asleep and made off with their TVs and other items.

Ac­cord­ing to Ne­wark Po­lice spokesman Cpl. James Spadola, the theft oc­curred some­time be­tween Aug. 19 and Aug. 20 in the 900 block of Bay­lor Drive.

The vic­tim told po­lice she went to sleep at ap­prox­i­mately 11:30 p.m. and woke up at 5 a.m. to take her dog out­side. On her way out, she no­ticed the front door was open even though it was locked when she and her room­mates went to bed.

Spadola said the vic­tim then walked around the house and re­al­ized two flatscreen TVs worth $800 to­tal were gone, as were as a Sam­sung cell­phone and an undis­closed amount of cash.

Po­lice be­lieve the bur­glar got in through a rear garage door, which was left un­locked, but have not iden­ti­fied any sus­pects at this time.
