On June 21, police were dispatched to a residential burglary call at an apartment on the 800-block of Briarcliff Terrace NE. A female victim advised that she left town around 3:30 pm on June 18 and returned on June 21 around 3:00 pm. When she entered her apartment, she noticed things out of place. Her blinds were on top of the couch instead of tucked into the window ledge, and one of her pillows was on the floor. The victim advised that no one else had keys or permission to access her home. When she checked her window, the victim discovered that it had been pushed in, off the track. On further investigation, the victim discovered that two HP Pavilion laptops were stolen – one grey in color and one silver. She also discovered a spare car key missing, along with six pairs of shoes, a MGM purse (cream color), Louis Vuitton duffel bag (white), a black 50 lb safe that was in her closet, a black machete that she hid under her sofa cushion, and a Sony Soundbar. Police were unable to retrieve fingerprints from the window.
