BURGLARY SUSPECT SPOTTED IN MAIN ST. COIN LAUNDRY

Earl Lofton, 20, of 79 Kingsley St. was arrested Sunday and charged with burglarizing an Elmwood Avenue apartment.

Lofton was accused of entering the apartment at 10:15 p.m. through a window and taking two stereo speakers, a cassette player and several other items, police said. He was charged with second-degree burglary, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny.

Theater District Station police arrested Lofton soon after the burglary when a neighbor, who allegedly saw him leave the apartment, spotted Lofton in a Main Street coin laundry and alerted authorities.
