About 9:54 p.m. Thursday a Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to a Joe Frank Harris Parkway residence in Adairsville in reference to a burglary that included the taking of firearms, according to an incident report.

Upon arrival, the deputy met with the complainant who stated an unknown person entered her residence took firearms without permission while she was on a work-related trip from Aug. 1 to Sept. 26.

She stated when she returned to her residence, she observed two entrance ways into her residence to be damaged and firearms missing. She was able to show where she believes entry was made into her residence, one by a damaged area on a screen door and another by forced entry through the garage door.

The release states the complainant said she would provide a serial number for one of the firearms, which will be entered into the Georgia Crime and Information Center.

Door shattered, jewelry stolen

About 10:30 a.m. Thursday, a BCSO deputy was dispatched to a Miners Point residence in reference to a burglary, according to an incident report.

Upon arrival, the deputy met with the complainant who stated that morning she left her residence about 9 a.m. and when she returned about 10:15 a.m. she pulled into the garage and noticed the door going inside from the garage was open. She stepped into the door and noticed the back sliding-glass door was broken.

The deputy cleared the residence and noticed several guns laying around the living room, the door glass shattered and the master bedroom in disarray.

After a brief walkthrough by the complainant and her husband, the following was observed: one shotgun had been moved from the garage to the living room along with three guns from the bedroom. An unknown amount of jewelry had been taken from the master bedroom/bathroom and a gun safe in the bedroom had pry marks about the door edges.

The deputy also observed a yellow handled flathead screwdriver in the living room which they said did not belong to them.

The complainant stated as she was leaving Thursday morning she did notice a white male approximately 20 to 25 years of age standing about 100 yards from her house and he seemed to be out of place. He was described as wearing a camouflage jacket with a hood and baggy pants.

The deputy searched the area for the suspect or any other suspicious activity for about an hour.
