LOCK THWARTS BURGLARY: Broadleaf Architecture, 534 N.W. Fourth St. A man reported that someone broke a window pane near the door jamb on the front door and the back door of his business building. The culprit was unable to gain entry because the front door had a deadbolt that required a key on both sides. The inside of the rear door had a sheet of plywood screwed to it, making it difficult to reach inside.


BURGLARY: 9:41 p.m., 1200 block Northwest 29th Street. Two men reported that about 4:15 p.m., someone went into their apartment and stole a guitar, a Stihl chain saw and a Kingo stereo. The intruder forced open the locked front door to enter. The stolen property was valued at $650.
