Dog, Police Hunt Burglar After North Street Break-in

A man broke into a Danvers home on Thursday while a resident was home.

Police scoured a Danvers neighborhood for a suspect in a midday home break-in on Thursday.

It all started at about 12:30 p.m. when police received a call from a resident on North Street, near Calumet Road, reporting that someone was breaking in to her home.

“The homeowner was home when someone tried to break-in,” said Danvers Police Capt. Patrick Ambrose.

The homeowner was not injured.

The suspect got away and police continued to investigate, as of Thursday afternoon.

“We believe the suspect was able to get back to the vehicle,” Ambrose said.

Ambrose said it was too early to say whether anything was taken.

A grey Jeep with a handicapped placard was being sought in connection to the break-in. A white female with blonde hair was seen driving the Jeep.

The man who broke it was described as a white man wearing jeans and a grey Patriots sweatshirt.

Danvers police also got assistance from Topsfield police and State Police, which brought in a police dog to help track the suspect.
