BEST-POLICE-Patch-EVER-275x300At this week’s Police Commission meeting, Chief Gagne recapped October’s incident reports, including the Oct. 24 burglary complaint on Highland Terrace during which an elderly woman woke to find a stocky man wearing a hood inside her bedroom.

Investigating officers found that the person had pride open a door and a jewelry box had been taken.

A K-9 track led to the road, so perhaps the suspect got into a car at that point, according to the report.

• Officers responded to a burglary complaint on Longmeadow Road on October 3 around 3:45 p.m.

According to the report tools were taken from an unlocked garage.

• Police were dispatched to the Racebrook Wine and Liquor Store at 3:49 a.m. on Oct. 18 for a burglar alarm.

Someone had forced entry into the building and took cash and cigarettes.

Investigation revealed that Milford had a similar burglary soon afterward on the same night. The two departments are working together on the investigation.

116 Boston Post Road in Orange

Officers were dispatched to 116 Boston Post Road (Game X Change) near the West Haven town line for an activated burglar alarm on Dec. 30, at 4:58 a.m.

Upon arrival, officers found the front door of Game X Change had been shattered, and it appeared entry had been made.

Officers observed a trailer hitch with ball laying on top of the snow directly in front of the shattered door.  Several hand held video games reportedly were stolen.

The store’s Closed Circuit TV camera captured a white male wearing a green jacket with and embroidered design on the back and dark hat entering the store, grabbing merchandise from a display case and fleeing in what appears to be a dark colored pick up truck.

The Orange Police Department is looking for the public’s help in identifying the burglar.  Anyone with information can call Orange Police Detective John Reshotnik at 203-891-2138.
