Police released the following details in an email alert Friday and are asking anyone with information to call police.
A burglary occurred around 11am this morning (March 15) in the 1700 block of Topping Road. The suspect(s) forced open the French doors on the southwest side of the house and apparently made entry a short distance into the residence when a motion alarm was activated. The burglar(s) fled and nothing was taken.
This afternoon we had an attempt burglary in the 700 block of Stifel Ridge Court in the Manderleigh neighborhood off of Woods Mill.
At approximately 3:40 pm a woman pulled into the driveway in an older BMW. She rang the doorbell carrying a small dog. The residents were home but did not answer the door. Shortly after the woman left the residents saw a powder blue Isuzu Trooper, or similar vehicle, with Texas plates pull in front of the house.
Police said three males wearing ball caps and blue jump suits got out of the Trooper and walked to the back of the home. Residents then told police they heard the patio door shatter, so a resident came out onto his porch and the three males fled in the Isuzu Trooper.
