Mastronardy said no arrests have been made and no new suspect details were released regarding two burglaries reported last week.
In one, a suspect is described as a 5’ 9" man, wearing black clothing, black ski mask and gloves, broke into a Cathedral Court home and stole $10,000 in jewelry.
The man managed to enter a second story bathroom window of a Cathedral Court home, said Mastronardy.
The resident, a 54 year-old woman, awoke at 2 a.m. Wednesday and turned on a light, only to be confronted by the man in her bedroom, Mastronardy said. The suspect fled on foot.
In a second Wednesday burglary, a Clifton Avenue home was broken into between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. An unknown suspect entered through the front door of a Clifton Avenue home, Mastronardy said. The suspect removed more than $500 in jewelry and $100 in cash.
