A Wecker Street man said thieves broke into his Buffalo apartment in the 100 block on Saturday night and took $10,000 in cash, which he had been storing in a sneaker box in his bedroom.

The victim told police that the suspects knew what they were looking for. He told police it appeared that the suspects forced their way in and went straight to his bedroom, where he had been storing the cash in the cardboard box.

Police documented the scene and recovered a hammer that was used in the burglary.

The victim said he and a roommate had been away from the apartment during the incident, which was reported early Sunday morning.
