Woman Allegedly Has Items Stolen from Storage Unit

PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. – A Bronx woman allegedly had property stolen from her storage unit in Pelham Manor earlier this week and said her apartment has been burglarized at least six times in the past few months.

The woman told police that when she went to the storage unit to put some items into it, she found that a Nintendo Wii game, some kitchenware and some women's clothing had been stolen. She uses a key style padlock that had not been opened or damaged before she tried to use it, according to the police report.

The alleged thefts occurred at some point from Saturday to Tuesday.

She told officers that her Bronx apartment had been burglarized at least six times recently and that personal items had been taken each time. She said she had changed the locks each time and that there had never been any signs of forced entry or tampering with the locks.

She added that no one else has keys or access to her apartment or storage unit.

The woman told police that she suspects her 23-year-old estranged, adopted son is responsible for the alleged thefts because of his vindictive nature, according to the police report. Police had no evidence to support that claim.

Proprietors of the storage unit were set to conduct an internal investigation and inform the police department of the results. The woman would supply the police reports from Co-op City and the New York Police Department, if necessary.

There were no witnesses to the alleged burglary. The detective division was set to follow up on the case.
