Someone broke into a Dean Street house sometime during the day on May 1.

The 31-year-old victim said that she left her house, which is between Vanderbilt and Carlton avenues, at around 8 am. When she returned eight hours later, she noticed the rear kitchen window was open, and her son’s green backpack was missing.

A neighbor told police she saw a man in the victim’s backyard holding the green backpack at 10 am. The suspect made off with three video game systems, a cellphone and various video games — more than $2,000 of loot.

Car break
