The residential burglary occurred on Garden Road. Electronics and loose change reportedly were taken. Police had partial recovery of the stolen items and developed a suspect in the case.
On Sept. 17, there were two overnight burglaries. One at a Dunkin Donuts, where the drive-thru was used to gain entry and the second, at a Subway Restaurant, 292 Boston Post Road, where a front window was smashed.
Police said cash was taken in both incidents and there are no suspects in either case.
There is hope though, there have been several similar burglaries at Subway and Dunkin Donuts shops in three other surrounding towns.
The third burglary occurred on Sept. 18 at Orange Hills Country Club where the front door was forcibly opened.
A K-9 track led to the roadway then stopped, indicating that the suspect may have gotten into a car.
The Investigative Services Unit (ISU) is following up on this incident.
The ISU investigated the thefts of beer kegs from the Orange Ale House.
According to the report a suspect was found and allegedly admitted to six such incidents from this establishment.
