Foiled burglary attempt puts Cortlandt Manor neighborhood on alert
Police are scouring a Lake Street neighborhood in Cortlandt Manor for a man who broke into a house earlier today.
Cops say one of the homeowners allegedly caught the burglar in the act and startled him away, but not before the man got away with some money.
State and county police set up a perimeter in the neighborhood after the break-in at around 1:30 p.m. They also launched the county helicopter and used a K-9 to track the scent of the suspect.
