Blotter: Burglar slips in while residents were out

Comments () A Text Size

An unlocked window may have led to a burglary Sunday night.

Denton officers were called to a report of a burglary in the 1600 block of North Elm Street. The victims were out of the house for a few hours and when they returned they discovered several items were missing.

The victims believe the suspects may have entered through the front window, which they had accidentally left unlocked.

The items taken were loose change and dollar bills, other small items with little value. The report said that, although vague, the victims had possible suspect information.
