Home break-ins continue in O.B.

Thieves prey upon empty homes

Police responded to a pair of break-and-enters last week.

The first, on Oliver Street, took place while the homeowners were out of town. A housekeeper discovered that the home had been entered through a basement window.

Police are waiting for the owners to return to determine what, if anything, was stolen.

The second break-in targeted a home on Weald Avenue.

Thieves pried open a rear window and stole two Macbook laptop computers. The home’s alarm had not been set.
