Separate Andorra Apartments Burglarized, Police Said

Henry Avenue apartment complex residents report crimes in early October.

Four separate residents from apartments at 8200 Henry Ave. experienced break-ins earlier in October, Philadelphia Police said.

On Oct. 1, three residents from the apartment complex said they were victimized by a burglar, while a fourth person said someone tried to break-in to his apartment.

A female resident called police to the apartment and reported an overnight break-in. Police found her front door pried open. She reported $1,000 in items taken, including an X-Box, HP laptop and cash taken from her bedroom nightstand.

While on scene, police noticed similar prying marks on nearby property. At both apartments, residents told police they also experienced burglaries.

Nearly $3,000 in valuables—including a television, three laptops, iPod and a purse—were taken from one apartment. Police lifted fingerprints there.

At the other apartment, the resident reported a $550 laptop stolen.

Later, a fourth resident told police someone attempted to break in to his apartment but stopped. While sleeping, he said someone pried his door open but stopped. The resident tried to get a glimpse of the burglar, but he said his door was damaged by the break-in attempt and he couldn't open it in time.

The Northwest Detective Division is handling the case, police said.
