Goshen woman wakes up to find burglars in home

Posted: Updated:

A 70-year-old woman in Goshen had the terrifying experience of waking up to find burglars in her bedroom.

Police say the woman was sleeping in her Meadowbrook Lane home when she was startled by someone touching her shoulder. They say the burglars became startled and took off, getting away with only a candy dish.

According to police, since July there have been about 20 break-ins in the town of Goshen. "I think a good number of them are related. It's the same group this is the third one in the development she lives in since Thanksgiving," say Sgt. Allen Faust, of the Goshen Police Department.
