RPD: Gates of Rochester burglar likely entered from apartment window

(ABC 6 News) – A burglar likely entered a Gates of Rochester apartment Thursday by removing the window screen and climbing inside, Rochester police say.

Rochester police responded to a burglary report Thursday, Dec. 8, reported by a 23-year-old woman who left her residence at 10:45 a.m. and returned at about 8:15 p.m. to signs that her home had been ransacked.

Police found that the screen from one of her windows had been removed, and found footprints in the snow outside, which suggest the burglar entered the apartment from the window.

The woman told police someone had rifled through her closet and drawers, but she was unsure whether anything had been taken Thursday evening.

The incident remains under investigation.
