HIGHLAND PARK — Two handguns were among several items stolen from a Highland Park home while the owner was out of the country between mid January and early March.
Upon returning to the home, located on the 300 block of Walker Avenue, the owner found a note in the mailbox from an anonymous witness indicating that on Feb. 28, two men were observed on the property. The witness suspected the men may have been attempting to break into the residence.
The homeowner discovered the home had in fact been entered and property was missing, including the two handguns. Police are now investigating the residential burglary, which was reported on March 8.
