Electronics items were reported stolen from two Union City homes during break-ins over the holiday weekend.
The burglaries occurred at homes on High Street and on East Main Street in Union City.
Police responded Friday night to a burglary at Michael and Nicole Evans’ home at 1301 East High St., according to a Union City Police Department report.
Evans told police he and his wife left their residence around 9:30 p.m. and returned about 11:30 p.m. to discover the break-in.
Entry apparently was made from the front window on the east side of the home. The items stolen had been sitting on a television stand in front of the window and the offender apparently never entered the residence but only raised the window and reached inside to pull everything out through the window, according to the report.
Items taken were a Panasonic 42-inch plasma flat-screen television, an Xbox 360 with a game and three movies rented from Redbox.
Sunday, police responded to a burglary at Terry and Jennie Overall’s residence at 815 East Main St.
According to a police report, Mrs. Overall’s son told police he had gone to church and returned about 1 p.m. He said he fell asleep and woke about 4 p.m. to notice his Xbox 360 and two laptops were missing from his room. He didn’t know when the items were taken and there were no signs of forced entry.
Mrs. Overall contacted police Monday after returning home and told police two of her husband’s handguns were also missing, as well as a Nikon 35mm camera and a Glock backpack, according to the report.
