Nearly $24,000 taken in home burglary

Nearly $24,000 in cash was taken from a Gelston Street home Saturday by damaging a screen and entering through a first-floor window, Buffalo Police said.

A Burmese family reported the incident, and an investigation is continuing with the help of an interpreter.

Many burglaries have occurred on the West Side, targeting refugees from Burma who have arrived in Buffalo by the thousands over the past decade, according to a recent article in The Buffalo News.
