Sept. 20, 2011: Burglary- A resident of Richmond Avenue reported to Police that an unknown actor entered his home by breaking a window pane on the rear door which enabled the actor to unlock the door.  Once inside, the actor ransacked dresser drawers and jewelry boxes in the second floor bedrooms and removed several pieces of jewelry.  The home was vacant from 9:30 in the morning until 6:15 pm.
Sept. 22, 2011: Robbery- At 11:30 pm a man walked in to Police Headquarters to report that he had just been robbed at gun point while he was walking on Burnett Ave near Dehart Park.  The incident occurred approximately 15 minutes before he arrived at Headquarters and it involved two black males. One of the men was reportedly armed with a handgun. 
The victim reported that as he was walking north on Burnett Ave near Dehart Park the two men approached him from behind and one of them brandished a handgun and demanded the victim turn over his money.  The second suspect then began to go through the victim's pockets and removed a wallet with some cash and a cell phone.  They also took the victim's back pack which contained some personal items.
