UPDATE: From the Police to Historic Germantown, Inc. via the Salemtown Neighbors e-mail list:
On Saturday June 13, during the afternoon or evening, a burglar broke in to 1410 5th Avenue North while the residents were away from home. The thief stole many items, including electronics such as televisions and computers, and gained entry through a window at the back of the house which could not been seen from the street.
The intruder broke the window glass and apparently was cut, as blood was found at the scene. The Police CSI unit took blood samples and is checking for a match. No other information is available at this time.
