Fairfield Beach house break-in during storm
Police are investigating a burglary to a house on Fairfield Beach Road, which was unoccupied after the occupants evacuated during Tropical Storm Irene.
A next-door neighbor noticed on Wednesday the glass panels on the front door were smashed, but said they were not broken the night before.
According to the report, it appears someone had slept in an upstairs bedroom of the house and turned on the air conditioning. Someone also may have slept on a sofa on the front porch, police said.
The damage to the door was estimated at $200.
