PORTER | A Porter woman and her friends walked into her apartment while two men dressed in black were leaving through the apartment's sliding glass door.

Police were called at 12:25 a.m. Sunday to an apartment at 700 N. Waverly Road.

Police said one of the woman's friends ran downstairs and saw the two men run from behind the building. One ran to the north, the other to the east.

Investigators said the latch on the sliding glass door was damaged. Among the items taken were TVs, a Playstation 3, an Xbox 360 video game system, jewelry, cash, a computer and other electronics.

About 6:15 p.m. Monday, a woman who lives in another apartment at 700 N. Waverly Road reported a burglary.

Police said there were pry marks on the sliding glass door. A Playstation 3, a DVD and cash were reported missing.

Authorities said they checked a nearby apartment regarding a suspect. Police arrested a man on unrelated charges, but a pawn ticket was found in his possession.

Police are also investigating the theft of several items from cars in the 1000 West block of Beam Street. Police were called at 8:44 a.m. Saturday about the vehicle break-ins. A car stereo, two iPods, headphones, a portable Playstation video game, a purse and prescription medication were reported stolen.

On Sunday, a pole barn in the 1000 West block of Beam Street was entered. The owner told police Sunday the service door was kicked in, but nothing was reported missing.
