Just hours after a multi-agency effort to crackdown on probation and parole violators ended in Lodi, a home and a local business were hit by burglars early Saturday.
At approximately 2:30 a.m., burglars pried the screen off a first-story apartment on the 300 block on West Locust Street. They pulled back the curtains, reached in and attempted to steal a PlayStation 3.
The burglars were able to pry the device off the top of a desk where it sat, despite the fact that it had been hooked up not only to a computer monitor, but to an outlet as well.
During their burglary, the suspects also attempted to steal headphones, but they got caught in the window. Only a computer cord was left after the burglars fled the scene when the homeowners awoke.
While police were responding to the call on West Locust Street, another burglary alarm sounded, this time at The Hollywood Cafe, located at 315 S. Cherokee Lane.
Police officers responded to the local restaurant, and searched the building to see what had been stolen.
It is unclear what was taken at this time.
