Police are investigating the burglary of a home on the 2200 block of Cedar Point Drive that resulted in the loss of $20,000 of cash.
A caregiver, watching the home while the family was away in Florida, told police Saturday that on April 6 she found a cellar door ajar but didn’t think anything of it. On April 7, she found a screen to a bedroom cut and the window unlocked but closed.
She contacted the homeowner and at his suggestion checked to see if $20,000 in cash was still in a dresser drawer. When she checked it was gone.
The homeowner returned from Florida and verified the money was missing. He told the police had been saving the money for his two daughters.
