Woman claims man barged into home and stole cash, medications | Crime
A 66-year-old woman told police a man forced his way into her home and stole cash and several of her medications.
The woman said the heavy-set man, believed to be in his 20s, knocked on the front door of her home in the 400-block of Richmond around 5:30 p.m. Monday. Upon opening the door slightly, she said the man pushed his way inside.
He then reportedly pushed the woman “onto the living room floor and went to her bathroom.” He then went into her bedroom and opened the top drawer of her dresser. The woman said she had followed the man to the bedroom to see what he was doing. According to the report, “the suspect then pushed her down onto the floor again” before leaving the residence.
The woman said the man stole $220 in cash and several bottles of prescription medication, including MS Contin, Nitrostat and an unknown quantity of stool softener pills.
The woman told the investigating officer she was too scared to call police and “didn’t realize that she could make a report at the time.”
There are no suspects at this time.
In an unrelated case, a 26-year-old woman claims while she and her sister were in the hospital someone broke into their trailer home in the 1600-block of Arrowhead Farm Road and stole a $40 cell phone along with a variety of shampoos, conditioners and ladies' razors.
She told police the robbery happened sometime between September 1 and September 6.
The officer reported he "did not observe any sign of forced entry." Neighbors reportedly said they had not "observed anyone going in and out of the trailer that did not belong there."
