A resident in another room called out, "Hello," and the suspect responded, "What's up?" The resident then heard more glass shatter and the suspect fled the scene, the police report showed.
Between 11:30 a.m. and 11:38 p.m. on June 15, in the 9300 block of Pent Angel Way, the basement door to a home was pried open and two laptops and possibly jewelry were taken, according to another police report.
