Burglar steals insurance company records, plus 2 other home burglaries reported

Burglaries usually involve the theft of items such as firearms, jewelry, electronics, or cash. But an Aug. 24 burglary in Fayetteville was accompanied by the theft of insurance company records.

Fayetteville Police Department spokesman Jeff Harris said officers met Aug. 24 with the owner of State Farm’s insurance office at 85 North Parkway near Highway 85 North in reference to a burglary. .

Officers noted the building was broken into after a forced entry through a rear window, Harris said.

The owner said no one was in the office from 5 p.m. the day before until 9 a.m. on August 24.

The office had been searched, with the owner reporting a number of files missing, Harris said, adding that the owner had said a full inventory would be taken.

Two other burglaries have been reported in recent days, both at residences in unincorporated Fayette County.

Sheriff Barry Babb said a homeowner at Dix Lee On Drive off Georgia Route 279 called the sheriff’s office Aug. 24 to report a burglary.

The owner reported that her purse and a laptop bag were stolen, Babb said.

Deputies were told the woman believed the entrance was made through the garage after the opener was accessed from her vehicle in the driveway, Babb said.

Another burglary was reported on August 20 at a residence on Hillcrest Avenue in Kenwood Landing Mobile Home Park near Milam Road.

The resident told deputies she arrived at her home at 8 p.m. and found the locked back door was open.

Deputies found the door had been forced open, noting pry marks and twisted metal, Babb said.

Babb said the woman did not report any deficiencies.
