Between 12:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. on April 19, police believe a person entered a home in the unit block of Gunhurst Garth through a basement door, and stole computers, an Xbox, a TV and video games, according to a police report.
Between 1:50 p.m. and 3 p.m. on April 17, a homeowner in the unit block of Silverwood Court reported that a doorframe was broken, but no one entered the home and nothing was taken, the police report showed.
Officer Mark Dorsey of the said investigators believe the burglar did not enter the Silverwood Court home because there were barking dogs inside.
