Police in Goshen were inundated with calls from residents in reference to a rash of
burglaries and attempted burglaries to detached garages and sheds on Friday, Aug. 12.
By noon, police reported calls from as many as eight residents but expected the number to increase due to many residents leaving for work prior to sunrise and not noticing anything suspicious, according to the Goshen Police Department.
