Back To Front Page

Porter Police are investigating two burglaries in the Orchard Apartments at 700 N. Waverly Road, the first in the 700 building, the second in the 600 block building.

The first burglary was reported shortly after midnight on Sunday, when a resident returned home to find the lights on in her apartment and two male subjects fleeing through a rear sliding door. Police said that the sliding door had been forced open and the latch broken.

The whole of the apartment had been ransacked and items strewn across the floor. Stolen: a 47-inch Samsung flatscreen television, a Playstation3, an Xbox 360, 11 video games, assorted jewelry, a Playstation 22-inch 3D TV with two pairs of glasses, a necklace, an iPod, an iPhone, a cable box, a Visio 22-inch flatscreen TV, a bag containing around $600 in cash, a H-P computer tower, a Coach purse, and personal identification.

The suspects, two of them, were described as white males dressed in black. Once outside the apartment, they split up, one going north, the other east, police said. K-9 units were unable to establish a track.

No estimate of loss was available.

The second burglary was reported at 6:16 p.m. Monday. As in the earlier burglary, access to the apartment was gained by forcing open a rear sliding glass door, police said. Stolen: a Playstation3, a DVD, and $50 in cash.
