WPCNR POLICE GAZETTE. From the Department of Public Safety. January 14, 2012:
A home of an gun permit holder was burglarized over the weekend, but police note it appears it is coincidental, since other items were taken. The Department of Public Safety has also announced it has apprehended a suspect in a series of burglaries in the Lake Street, North Broadway area. Details of the arrest are being sorted out at this time.
White Plains Commissioner of Public Safety David Chong issued this statement to WPCNR early this afternoon:
"On Saturday January 12th 2013, a residence was burglarized on Davis Avenue. The Burglary occurred between the hours of 0715 AM and 8:26 PM while the homeowner was not home.
Access was made through a second story window through a ladder owned by the homeowner. Jewelry items were taken and a secured locked rifle safe was tampered with, no weapons were stolen.
The home owner made mention that he was recently listed on a Journal News inter-active website as a legal gun permit holder. The Department of Public Safety is investigating this as a burglary and except for this one instance has no pattern of homes listed on the permit web-site as being targeted. We however are monitoring this very closely.
We take all burglaries seriously, and on Saturday the Department arrested a burglar who we believe is linked to a series of burglaries in the Lake Street/North Broadway apartments area.
The burglary on Davis Avenue is an active investigation. (Continuing)
The Department of Public Safety would like to remind residents to secure all windows and doors when they are not home, and to call us immediately if they observe any suspicious activity.
