David Fallarino, whose two assistants testified against Manafort during his trial but who did not participate himself, told police that he had heard a noise on his terrace around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday and went out to find a crowbar lying on the terrace without any other signs of forced entry, sources told NBC 4 New York.

Fallarino added that he had likely left his terrace door unlocked, allowing the suspect or suspects to enter without issue and steal an iPad, a briefcase and a pair of sneakers, according to law enforcement sources.

Manafort's accountant Cindy Laporta testified during the former Trump aide's trial earlier this month that she misrepresented Manafort's assets on his behalf in discussions with Fallarino, a loan officer at Citizens Bank, in order to obtain a loan for one of Manafort's properties.

Laporta added that she knowingly submitted a "false" document to Fallarino claiming that a $1.5 million loan Manafort had already taken out was forgiven.

Fallarino has not been implicated in any wrongdoing over the matter and did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill on Tuesday.

Law enforcement sources could not confirm to NBC 4 whether a suspect or suspects were currently being investigated over the break-in.
