Northland: Woman reports cash stolen in morning burglary

A 24-year-old Ironwood Court woman contacted police at 11:15 a.m. Feb. 27 to say her apartment had been burglarized, possibly by someone she knows.

The woman said her suspicions were aroused because her pit bull "was inside and he only lets people in that he knows," according to the report. The woman said her wallet, containing $835 in cash, was taken in the burglary, which occurred between 8:30 and 9:30 that morning.
