Blotter: Family suspects relative in house burglary

A family member is suspected of burglarizing a home in the 3900 block of Teasley Lane on Monday night, Denton police said.

Officers sent to the home were told by a resident that she had returned from an out-of-town trip to find that someone had broken into her house. Several items had been stolen, she told officers.

It appeared that someone had entered through a window. A TV and some game systems were stolen, although many items of value were left in the home, the report stated.

Several family and extended family members told officers that they thought the house may have been burglarized by a relative who was a drug addict, reports state.

Officers attempted to contact that person but were unsuccessful.
