• A woman who purchased a home over the summer on Mid Ocean Drive called police on Sep. 6 to report that more than $5,400 worth of items she had shipped to the home were stolen. The woman reported that she had been shipping valuables to the house in expectation of moving in after Labor Day.  The victim shipped a coffee maker, a toaster, and pots and pans, but when she arrived, she noticed the shipment was missing.
