While Redway Family Was Sleeping, a Burglar Crept Into Their Home
A week ago tonight as rain fell, a couple and their teenage daughter lay sleeping on Apple Lane in Redway. When they awoke Sunday morning, they discovered that between midnight and 7 a.m., someone had entered their home and stole from them.
The thief slipped in and took not only purses belonging to the two women but also opened their refrigerator and took out the orange juice container, drank the contents and discarded it in the backyard.
According to the resident, not only his place but a “half a dozen places in Redway that I know of on Saturday night” were burgled in the rain. “At least two other people were burgled that night within 100 meters of our home,” he said. “The person just found an unlocked door and entered (not a break in).”
He wanted the community to be on alert and remember to lock their doors.
