The West Point Police Department is keeping its ears to the ground amidst its hunt for information regarding a string of burglaries spanning from March to April of this year. And without a doubt, March proved to have some heavy-hitters in the underworld.
According to Police Chief of Investigations Albert Lee, officers were dispatched about about 4:31 p.m. March 17 to the 700 block of Progress Street in reference to a possible burglary of a dwelling.
Lee said the homeowner reportedly left his/her apartment at about 11:30 a.m. that same day. Upon the homeownerâ€™s return, the victim said the residence had an â€śunusual draft.â€ť Further inspection of the dwelling conducted by the homeowner indicated that an individual had broken in.
According to the report, the point of entry was one of the bedroom windows. No damage was sustained anywhere in the apartment which, according to Lee, served as a likely indicator that the window in question was unlocked. The homeowner reported to responding officers that there were clothes â€śscattered around the room.â€ť
