Police Say House on Shady Lane was Burglarized While Resident Was at Home

Resident surprises burglar, who throws a golf club at him then flees the area, police said.

A resident of the 300 block of North Shady Lane caught a man in the act of burglarizing his home at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9.

Police said the victim was in his room when he heard a noise coming from his father's bedroom. He went to see what the noise was when he was confronted by a white man, about 18 years old, 6 feet tall and 180 pounds with brown hair. The suspect, who was wearing a black sweatshirt with green writing on it and blue jeans, threw a golf club at the victim then fled through a sliding glass door in the father's bedroom.

The suspect was last seen fleeing westbound on North Avenue from Shady Lane in a black, older model Honda Civic.

Taken from the home was $700 to $800 in cash that was in his father's jewelry box.

Not enough patrol in the streets. Too many cop cars parked waiting for 911 calls.

Who cares where he keeps his cash? The point for the community is the number of burglaries taking place, regardless of what was taken or how easy it was to find after the breaking and entering took place.
