While speaking to them another Winthrop Road resident approached the officers to inform them that she had been awoken around 1:30 a.m. to the sound of glass breaking and discovered her storm door glass shattered. This resident had yard debris bags in front of her house. It could not be determined what caused the window to shatter and the resident was advised to notify her landlord of the damage.
