Burglary Case #16-55817:
On September 30, 2016, Dfc. A. Curtin responded to 3rd Street, in North Beach, for the report of a home burglary. The victim explained they had left their home unlocked and while they were gone, had received a call from someone claiming to represent the Rental Center they recently purchased a television from. This person stated they still owed money on the television but the victim stated it was already paid in full. Upon returning home, they observed the 65” RCA LED/LCD Smart TV was gone and a door hanger was hanging on their front door. The victim also reported a couple of weeks prior how they were approached by a black male, driving a Penske truck, claiming to represent this same company. He had stated he needed to come in to their home and verify the VIN on the TV set they had purchased. The male was refused entry.
