County Police are investigating two local burglaries that robbed victims out of thousands of dollars worth of property. A burglary was reported on Greensboro Road in Madison on December 24, resulting in over $2,000 dollars worth of belongings missing—including a firearm. The weapon, a black Glock 19, 9mm, was reportedly missing from the victim’s nightstand drawer in the bedroom. A new Mac Book Pro Laptop was also reported missing from a kitchen drawer that the victim had hidden as a Christmas present for her daughter.
According to reports, the victim named a nearby relative and ex-boyfriend as possible suspects and admitted to leaving the residence unlocked from time to time. Corporal George Jackson investigated the scene. Another burglary was reported to county police on December 21. A Buckhead man claims nearly $5,000 worth of belongings went missing from his home. Corporal Kenny Stewart was dispatched to Fawnfield Drive residence to investigate the report.
The owner believes the burglary occurred in early December when he received a phone call from his cleaning lady informing him that she thought several items were missing from the house. The owner does not live at the residency full-time and could not return to the Buckhead home until last week to confirm if any items were missing. According to the police report, a personal belongings totaling $4,757 were missing from the home, including three chandeliers, an i-Phone 5, a wireless camera baby monitor, art, clothes, perfumes, a $300 bottle of Don Perignon champagne, and other assorted bottles of wine and liquors.
According to the police report, there were no signs of forced entry and the home is a equipped with a combination lock on the front door that is only known by the owner, his cleaning lady, and Greensboro heating and air company. Police have yet to make contact with neighbors to inquire if anyone saw suspicious activity at the home on Fawnfield Drive.
