Burglar Alarm Prevents Property Entry

On Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 1:33 p.m., Roselle Park Police responded to the 100 block of West Colfax Avenue on a report of an activated interior motion burglar alarm and a side door exit alarm.

Police noticed a basement window pushed open and a side door of the house unlocked.

Additional patrol officers arrived and secured the perimeter as officers cleared the house. The house appeared to be in order with nothing noticeably disturbed.

The homeowner responded and confirmed that it did not appear that anything was taken but entry was gained and the alarm was activated causing the actor to flee the area.
