Falls burglary victim has hunch crime was triggered by spurned invitation

NIAGARA FALLS – The resident of a Fifth Street home burglarized Friday night suspects the perpetrator was a visitor to the home earlier in the day who had asked him about “doing some break-ins.”

A bedroom window to the home was broken out between 7 and 11:30 p.m. and a 19-inch flat-screen television, X-Box 360 videogame system and four game cartridges were stolen. The loss was placed at $460. Police said the visitor, who had played videogames, left in a huff after his burglary overture was rejected.
