SCARSDALE, N.Y. - A Scarsdale family got a scare last week when a homeowner woke up to find that her home had been rummaged and burglarized overnight while she and her children slept, police said.

On Monday, Jan. 23, a Franklin Road homeowner alerted police that an unknown person had entered her home overnight and removed several items and electronics from the residence.

According to the police report, the victim stated that she woke up on Monday morning to find that someone had rummaged through a room that is used as an office and removed several items, including a computer, bag, camera and money that was taken from a purse.

An iPad was left in the office. Additional drawers and cabinets were opened in the living room and dining room, but the homeowner didn’t report anything missing.

The homeowner’s nanny, who was sleeping on the first floor during the burglary, said she was awoken to a male “peering” into her room with a flashlight. According to police, she believed that the man with the flashlight was the homeowner’s son, but it was ultimately determined that was not the case. The nanny said she heard an adjacent basement door open, following that incident, but nothing else.

No suspect has been identified. The investigation into last week’s burglary is ongoing.
