Chesterton Police are investigating the attempted burglary on Monday of an
occupied residence in the 100 block of Brown Ave.
According to police, at 3 a.m. a resident heard a noise outside the home.
Further investigation indicated that someone had attempted to gain entrance
to the residence by removing a screen from a window, then unsuccessfully
trying to pry open the window.
A red two-horsepower Briggs & Stratton wheeled power washer was stolen,
however, police said. The loss was put at $50.
