Police blotter

Music store’s alarm cut, phones disconnected

An unknown amount of cash was taken from a register in a burglary at Wonderland Music, 13519 Michigan Avenue, sometime over the July 4 weekend.
Police said the burglar cut alarm wires on the exterior of the building and unplugged the businesses phone lines once inside. There were no signs of forced entry, leading police to believe that a former employee might be responsible.

Dog bites boy
A dog described by police as a black Labrador retriever freed itself from a leash and bit a bicycling boy in the 4600 block of Pelham July 13.
The boy told police he was riding near the house with a friend when the dog got loose and subsequently bit him on the shin. The bite caused several puncture wounds, police said.
The owner, who was outside sunbathing at the time, presented proof to police and the boy’s father that the dog was registered and current on all vaccinations.
