A Purlear man says he came home from a business trip to find someone had gone into his house and stolen two guns. It appears the thief knew he was gone and left the doors unlocked, because there was no forced entry. Both missing weapons are long guns — a Marlin .22 rifle and a Remington BDL-700 model with a high-power deer scope on it. A neighbor says he didn’t see anything, and Stacy Huffman has been looking for the rifle serial numbers so the weapons can be entered into the national crime database. So far, no suspects have surfaced. Nothing but the rifles was disturbed.
A Miller’s Creek woman says while she was out garage saling, a neighbor broke into her house and stole nearly 85-hundred dollars worht of electronics, CDs, DVDs and jewelry. It happened Friday morning on Shadyrest Drive in Millers Creek. Ruby Parsons reports a thief stole more than 250 CDs and DVDs worth a total of 48-hundred dollars, along with a 19-hundred dollar, 2-carat diamond ring. Some of the other items stolen were 30 hot wheels cars, some prescription medicines, a ruby ring, several brand new tee shirts, shoes, collectible knives, a gameboy and the associated games, and an antique 22-gauge 2-shot Derringer pistol.
She accuses an unidentified neighbor of the break-in, saying the woman had tried unsuccessfully to break in before. The door to Parsons’ home sometimes did not lock reliably.
