Burglars foiled by Southport home alarm
Police believe an audible burglar alarm at a home on Pequot Avenue may have scared a would-be intruder Wednesday afternoon of last week.
An officer dispatched to check the alarm found a door to the home ajar. The chain on the inside of the door was still in place and there were paint chips on the floor.
The homeowner had just left about one-half hour prior to the call.
