MANCHESTER — Four more burglaries were reported Tuesday, three in residences and one at a Harvard Street business that was also hit last week.
Just after midnight on Tuesday, someone opened a window on the first floor of a 123 Pleasant St. apartment, reached in and snatched a laptop computer and some cash sitting on a desk. No one was home at the time, police said.
At 8 a.m., employees arriving to work at Custom Architectural Designs at 640 Harvard St. discovered the business was burglarized over the long Labor Day weekend.
Someone forced open a window to enter the business and then took an assortment of tools. On Aug. 29, the business was broken into in a similar fashion. A Toyota Tundra pickup with a cap, which was parked inside the building, was stolen in that burglary, as well as some tools.
At 4:30 p.m., a Titus Avenue resident called police to report seeing a suspicious man at her neighbor’s home across the street at 160 Titus Ave.
Officers discovered someone had broken into the home through a rear door and stolen some jewelry.
The suspicious man seen by the neighbor is described as a thin white man, 20 to 25 years old, about 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-11 with short black hair and scruffy facial hair. He wore a white T-shirt and dark athletic shorts and was carrying a green and white canvas shopping bag.
At 5:30 p.m., a 662 Summer St. man reported someone broke into his apartment through a rear kitchen door and took a gaming console and computer. The man said the burglary happened sometime after 2 p.m.
