Police Searching for Burlgar. West Windsor police are looking for a man they say burglarized a residence on Providence Drive on October 6 and fled before police could catch him.
According to Officer Danny Mohr, a resident returned to her home around 11:05 a.m. and began cooking in the kitchen. She began hearing noises in an upstairs bedroom, walked to the foyer area, and saw a white man in his late 20s or 30s coming down the stairs with a black bag. Mohr said she confronted the suspect and told him to stop, but the suspect pushed her out of the way and ran out of a rear door of the house. As he did so, items removed from the home fell out of the bag.
Police searched the surrounding area with the help of a K9 officer from Lawrence Township but could not find the suspect. The man is described as between 5-foot-10-inches and 6 feet tall, stocky build, with short, blond/red hair, blue eyes, and wearing a black shirt, pants with a white stripe, and gloves.
