Burglars hit mayor’s Horton Ave. house
As Middletown police battle crime in the city, Mayor Marlinda Duncanson has become a recent victim.
Burglars jimmied the lock on a window yesterday afternoon, forced a screen open and climbed into Duncanson’s home on Horton Avenue, the mayor said. Police responded about 4 p.m., and are investigating. Duncanson said the burglars stole “nothing much” before they left. No one was home at the time. Citing the investigation, she couldn’t say whether police had any suspects or whether the burglary may be connected to a recent series of others that happened on the other side of the Horton campus of Orange Regional Medical Center.
