PELHAM, N.Y. The Pelham Manor Police Department responded to a Stellar Avenue home on Friday at 1:32 p.m. on the report of an attempted burglary. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with the victim and found out that the house was her fathers, but he had passed away in November. She now owns the home, but lives elsewhere.
The woman was last at the house on Feb. 29 around 4 p.m. and everything was in order. However, when she returned on Thursday, March 1 at 4 p.m., the front door had been damaged. She did not call the police at the time because she told the officer that she was too busy and had other things to do.
She also told police that she and her husband had put their hands all over the area of the door lock and fingerprints may not be an option anymore.
There was a contractor doing work at the house from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the past week and he only entered through the back door with a key given to him by the owner. She identified the company that the contractor worked at, but could not provide a name.
No entry was gained into the house and nothing was taken. A canvas of available residents for any video surveillance cameras was completed with negative results.
