Beware the backyard burglar


Police Chief Louis Ghione is asking residents to be on the lookout for a burglar who has been breaking into backyard sheds and garages “all over town.”
Last week, the chief reported, there were at least a half-dozen such crimes over the course of several nights. The thief, who apparently strikes at night, takes small tools and extension cords.
Extension cords? Yes. The ones stolen have been valued at about $100 apiece.
