Cary mayor's home burglarized
Posted February 8, 2012
Cary, N.C. — Mayor Harold Weinbrecht said Wednesday that his home was broken into early Tuesday, but an alarm scared the burglar off.
A man entered a screened-in back porch of Weinbrecht's house in the Wynston Ridge neighborhood in south Cary at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, the mayor said. He had just left for work, but his wife was home.
The burglar tripped a motion detector, which triggered an alarm and caused the intruder to flee, Weinbrecht said. Nothing was taken from the home, and no one was injured.
Police used a K-9 to search the neighborhood but didn't find the burglar.
"I've never been prouder of our police department," Weinbrecht said. "I am even more proud to be in a town as safe as Cary.”
