A Brooklawn Parkway resident reported a panel was removed from a side basement door on his home Thursday. There were signs a large safe in the house’s basement was moved and a jewelry box containing $10,000 in jewelry was reported missing from the basement. A pair of out-of-service iPhones also were reported stolen from the house’s upper levels, police say.
Another resident reported an attempted break-in at a Bennett Street home Thursday. A basement window on the house was broken and there was damage to the window frame, according to police reports. Investigators do not believe the suspects were able to get into the home.
