Homeowner Disrupts Alleged Burglary Attempt

A Middlebury man became suspicious of two men lurking around his house and contacted the cops.

A Whittemore Road resident encountered two men at his house around 10:10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14, and called after the men said they were trying to buy something from Craig's List.

One of the men was near the front door and the second man was near the back door of the home, Middlebury Police Lt. Richard Wildman stated in a press release.

The homeowner was wary of this and contacted Middlebury police.

"Officer [Ron] Pruchnicki responded along with Officer [Al] Cronin," Wildman stated. "Within minutes it was determined through the officers' investigation that the subjects were attempting to gain access to the home. No entry was ever made."
