Police said a stealthy burglary stole a TV and an XBox game system from a bedroom while two young boys slept in the room.
Chauree Graham of Poplar Street said she got up during the night to feed her newborn and noticed that the door to the bedroom of her other two sons was almost closed. She said that was unusual.
She looked in the room and saw the window blinds hanging down and mangled. She also noticed that the Insignia TV and XBox were missing.
She got the boys up and moved them into the living room, then called police.
One of the boys told her he had opened the window a small amount to get some air.
