BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Police are investigating a break-in at the home of Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger.

A spokesperson for the mayor says the Weinberger family reported the crime shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday.

No one was injured. Police say nothing immediately appeared to be missing.

In a statement, Mayor Weinberger said: “This evening my family came home from work and school to find that our home had been broken into. We reported the incident immediately to the Burlington Police Department. I am grateful to the officers who responded quickly and professionally, and who work every day to keep Burlingtonians safe. I am also heartened by the messages from many neighbors who have already shared concern for our family.”

Police say there is no reason to believe this is connected to the string of burglaries in South Burlington. There is no immediate risk to the public.
