invernessA spate of home burglaries in 2011 seemed to have ended until we received reports of two more incidents this week. The first one took place on Inverness Road at 6:45 pm on Saturday February 11. Police responded to a burglar alarm at the home and found a shattered glass door on the back patio. The suspect(s) ransacked the upstairs bedrooms targeting jewelry boxes. The amount of stolen property has not yet been determined.

Patrol officers searched the neighborhood for suspects and interviewed neighboring homeowners.

On Monday afternoon February 13 at 3:30 pm, police got a call from a Juniper Road woman to report that someone had entered her home between 11:00 am and 3:15 pm.

Suspect (s) entered the home by forcing open a ground floor window in the back of the house. The master bedroom was ransacked and numerous items, including jewelry and a wii game video console, were stolen.
