Hopatcong police are investigating an apparent home burglary where more than $2,000 worth of video games and consoles and $200 worth of cologne was allegedly stolen from an Elmira Trail home on Thursday.
The total value of allegedly stolen items is nearly $5,000, according to a report released by Lt. Thomas Kmetz.
According to Kmetz, the resident of the house came home to find the dog outside and a screen window torn and on the ground. The rest of the doors to the home were locked, the resident told police. The apparent burglary is believed to have occurred between 3 p.m. and 1:40 a.m.
When the resident returned home, three video game consoles (two Nintendo Wii consoles-valued at nearly $450 total-and an Xbox 360 with Kinect-valued at $299) were missing, as well as a Dell computer valued at $600 and a SONY television valued at $1,000.
The report stated that the $2,000 worth of video games allegedly stolen included titles such as Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers (Wii), Assassins Creed 3 (Xbox), Doom 3 (Xbox), Skyword Sword (Wii), Rock Band (Wii) and the associated drum set.
About $200 worth of DVDs were also reported stolen, along with $200 worth of cologne.
Neighbors did not see or hear anything suspicious at the home, Kmetz said. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 973-398-5000.
