Stolen flat-screen TVs show up in man’s backyard

A man returning home from walking his dog Monday night found something surprising in his backyard: two flat-screen televisions and other property that didn’t belong to him, police said.

He called 911 at 10:50 p.m., and officers investigating the neighborhood discovered a burglary in the 700 block of North Balthrop, which is northeast of Central and Greenwich Road, Capt. Troy Livingston said. The woman whose house was broken into identified her stolen property, which was then returned to her.
