Grandview: Thief suspect using chairs to scout out residences

A Grandview Heights resident told police Sept. 9 someone stole approximately $40 from her husband's wallet, which was on a stand near the front door of their residence in the 1100 block of Wyandotte Road.

The woman said entry to the house was apparently made by placing a patio chair underneath a front window, which had been unlocked. She said she noticed the window had been pushed up most of the way when she came downstairs in the morning.

Nothing else was taken from the residence.

Later on Sept. 9, a resident in the 1400 block of Wyandotte Road called police and also reported someone had put a chair underneath one of her living room windows. She said it did not appear any attempt was made to enter her home.
