Burglars broke into Senator Christopher J. Dodd’s office in Hartford, CT late Saturday, taking undisclosed items and leaving evidence at the scene, the police said.
Investigators declined to say what was stolen or what was left behind at the office, which is on Lewis Street.
Jamie Radice, a spokeswoman for Mr. Dodd, confirmed the break-in, but said she was not sure what was taken.
The police said they believe that the suspects jumped from the roof of a building next door onto the fire escape of the building that houses Mr. Dodd’s office and broke in through a second-story window. The burglary occurred between 10 and 11 p.m., they said.
Mr. Dodd is seeking the 2008 Democratic nomination for president.
