Two break-ins Jan. 30 saw one thief come away empty-handed, though not without causing some damage.
The manager of an apartment building in the 2100-block of Cadboro Bay Rd. discovered three laundry machines with damaged coin boxes. The coin deposit slides were pried off, but the money remained inside.
Residents of a home in the 2100-block of Foul Bay Rd. weren’t as lucky. A chunk of cement was used to smash the glass of an exterior basement door and gain entry. Missing were a pair of laptop computers, an Xbox and several games.
