A Buffalo man who was just released from jail said he was the victim of a couple of burglaries while he was behind bars, Ferry-Fillmore District officers reported Sunday.

A 33-year-old man told officers that after having spent 22 days in jail, he returned to his Kingsley Street home and discovered that clothing, footwear, jewelry and two laptop computers, among other things, were missing. The value of the property was estimated at $1,700.

He also reported that two toilets, lumber, two bronze shower heads and two bronze faucets, as well as 1,000 feet of copper electrical wire were among property missing from another Kingsley Street location where he stores construction materials. That loss was estimated at $1,000.

He told officers that he believes both burglaries were committed by a man seen breaking into his house by crawling through a window.
