Several Crystal Lake area homeowners in Bath Township have been victims of burglaries or attempted burglaries, according to Bath police Chief Michael McNeely.
On Oct. 8 around 3:53 a.m., a North Shore Drive homeowner was stirred awake by a loud boom that he said shook the house. When the homeowner went to investigate, he found that his phones lines had been cut, disarming the alarm that alerts police, and that someone had tried to get into his home through the garage, McNeely said.
McNeely is unsure what the loud boom was caused by, but it appeared that suspects were hitting the side of the garage trying to get in. Thieves were unsuccessful.
A similar occurrence happened between Sept. 1 and 4 on the same road, McNeely said. Power lines were cut, but the suspects did not gain entry.
The one time thieves were successful was on Harvest Drive, where a man's car was stolen, along with several high-priced items in his home. In that situation, the man's car was found abandoned approximately one mile away from his home.
The Bath Police Department is investigating these crimes and asks anyone with information to call 330-666-3736.
