Ithaca, N.Y. —Ithaca police are investigating a suspect in a string of 2012 burglaries in their attempt to catch the person responsible for a new round of burglaries this summer.
That’s according to Mayor Svante Myrick, who spoke with WHCU Radio’s Lee Rayburn Thursday morning.
The radio station said:
On Thursday, Myrick said police are using that video in their investigation, but also said police are looking into a string of break-ins that occurred in 2012, and a suspect arrested for those incidents.
He told Lee Rayburn on the Morning Newswatch that the person was considered a suspect, but clarified to WHCU later in the morning that police have “persons of interest,” and not a suspect.
At least 10 businesses, many of them on Ithaca’s west end, have been affected by the current round of break-ins. Police have not identified a suspect.
We’ve reached out to Ithaca police for confirmation of Myrick’s statement.
