Thieves attempted to break into a garage apartment on 5th Avenue North yesterday [Aug. 19]. This occurred during the day while no one was home. Luckily, the doors and windows were well secured and the thieves did not get into the apartment.
Metro police officers took fingerprints at the scene. However, they have no description of the crooks. The officers believe this was an opportunistic crime. The thieves were likely walking along the alley and saw what they thought would be an easy target, but it didn't turn out that way.
The police are looking for a break in the rash of burglaries lately. At this point they have no description and no suspect.
