Silverton Avenue resident John Pouso told Patch in an e-mail that his home was burglarized during the day on March 9. Pouso said he thought his teenaged daughter interrupted the theft and prevented the suspect from taking more than his wife's wedding ring, family jewelry and other irreplaceable items.
"We are now spooked," Pouso told Patch. "We leave lights on all night long, can't sleep. Looked into an alarm system but there isn't much more they can take, we are almost cleaned out."
Little Silver Police are asking residents to contact the department immediately if they observe anything suspicious, such as an unknown person or vehicle on their neighbor's property or parked in the neighborhood.
