On Jan. 8, Officers from the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office arrived at a residence on Lyle Road in reference to a theft.
Officers met with a woman who claims that some items were taken from a storage shed on her property.
The woman explained that she has several sheds and the doors are always closed to them, but never locked.
The woman said her son had come by earlier in the day and noticed that the doors were open to the storage building, but that nobody had been there in some time.
The victim noticed a pressure washer that was missing from the building nearest to the residence and that it was valued around 300 dollars.
No damage could be found to the storage building.
The victim also noticed a red Snapper riding lawnmower was missing from the storage building toward the back of her property.
It was discovered that a red tiller and a gray Stihl weed-eater were missing from the same storage building. The combined value for the three items from that building is over $2000.
A trail was found on the property where it appeared that the subjects had rolled the tiller. The trail found wend around the back yard and ended near the road. The two storage buildings vandalized where not near a good source of light and also unlocked.
Officers suggested a few ways in which the victim might prevent such theft in the future and an extra patrol was requested for the area.
