Man reports damage to garage door

A Manhattan man suspects he has his dog to thank for preventing burglary, according to a report from the Riley Country Police Department.

Between 7:45 a.m. and 5:35 p.m. Tuesday, the garage door of the home of Kenneth Burton, 55, was pried open. The home is located in the 1200 block on Wyndham Heights Drive, according to the report.

Capt. Kurt Moldrup of the RCPD said Burton was not home, and Burton believes whoever pried open the door was scared off by his dog.

Damages were estimated at $1,000.
