Newark Post - - FRONT PAGE - By BROOKE SCHULTZ bschultz@ches­pub.com

A Ne­wark man re­turned to his apart­ment as it was be­ing bur­glar­ized Tues­day night, po­lice said.

When the man re­turned to his ground-floor apart­ment at Colo­nial Gar­dens Apart­ments at 343 E. Main St. just af­ter 11 p.m., he heard noises com­ing from his bed­room and saw that items had been moved or were miss­ing, said Lt. An­drew Ru­bin, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice Depart­ment.

As the res­i­dent en­tered the bed­room, he saw that the in­truder had fled through the apart­ment win­dow.

Po­lice can­vassed the area but did not lo­cate a sus­pect.

Sev­eral items stolen from the apart­ment were lo­cated out­side.

Ru­bin would not spec­ify the method of en­try, only that the sus­pect en­tered the apart­ment us­ing force.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the bur­glary is asked to call De­tec­tive Wil­liam Anderson at 302-366-7100 x. 3469 or wan­der­son@ne­wark.de.us.
