Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a call of a possible home invasion in progress around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday at a residence on Woodside Street, near Temperance and Telegraph roads in Monroe Township.

The homeowner told police he was inside and could hear someone jiggling door handles from the outside. Moments later, the caller said he could hear someone trying to remove a window air conditioner from a bedroom window.
