3000 block of Markridge Road: A man received a phone call from his home alarm company at 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 17. The company told the man his home alarm had been triggered. When he went to check on it, he found the screen covering the door to the rear bedroom had been cut. The interior glass door remained locked and secure and it appeared no attempts to enter the house were made. The man believed the sound of the alarm scared the burglars away. Damage to the screen door was estimated at $75.
