Police investigating Barrington house break

Police: Home was targeted for break-in, not random

Posted

Barrington Police received a 911 call on Monday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. for a possible house break on Cherry Lane.

Officers responded to the scene and discovered that a front window at the home had been forced open and the interior of the home had been ransacked.

Police said a firearm and an unspecified amount of cash were stolen from the home. Police called surrounding departments in an effort to get K9 to the scene, but they were unable to find an available unit.

Police are still investigating.

Barrington Police Chief Michael Correira said it appears that the home was specifically targeted for the break-in and it was not a random act.
