Four burglars climbed into a second-floor window of a home on a private road early Friday evening, activating an alarm that alerted police, who arrived at the scene — too late. Here’s what police said happened:
Police received a communication about a burglar alarm at a home on Horseshoe Road, a private road at the north end of town. The time police gave for the incident was 6:27 p.m.
As police arrived at the scene (they didn’t say when), the homeowners, on vacation since Oct. 16, told police they had seen video from a remote camera feed showing four individuals climbing up to a second-floor window and entering the house. Police at the scene found out a little later was that the homeowners had also seen the four burglars leave through the same window.
