The West Point Police Department is keeping its ears to the ground in an effort to close the files on a burglary case from the year prior, in addition to fresh robberies.
At about midnight Oct. 13, 2012, officers were dispatched to the Town Creek Apartments in reference to a possible burglary of a dwelling.
According to WP Chief of Investigations Albert Lee, the homeowner, upon arrival at the residence, discovered a 20-inch Sony flatscreen television had been allegedly stolen. No serial number was provided.
Lee said the point of entry was the back window which had been â€śbroken outâ€ť by the alleged offender. The alleged offender, according to Lee, â€śrambledâ€ť through the apartment and proceeded to exit the dwelling through an alternate route.
Zip forward to about 3 p.m. Aug. 18 of this year.
Officers were dispatched to the National West Point Alumni Chapter Inc. at 415 5th St. in reference to a possible burglary.
According to Lee, officers were told someone entered the building and proceeded to steal several items, which included a Fedders air conditioner window unit. Lee said the offender(s) removed the air conditioner in order to gain access through the window on which it rested.
