Published DateLACONIA — City police are investigating the burglary of an occupied home on South Main Street early yesterday morning.
Capt. Matthew Canfield said police responded to a report at 12:55 a.m from a woman who woke and found someone in her apartment.
Canfield said she startled the burglary who fled. He said she was unable to provide a description of the intruder.
Police said police searched the area with the assistance of a Gilford K-9 but were unable to locate a suspect.
Canfield said this is the second incident involving an occupied home in nearly a week. He said someone tried to enter a home on the corner of Lyford and Belknap Streets by climbing onto a porch roof.
At this point, Canfield said police have no reason to believe the two incidents are related but are reminding people they should secure the doors to their homes and cars and to report suspicious behavior to police.
