Around 10 a.m. on Oct. 1, a Hamilton Mill resident frightened away a pair of would-be burglars who attempted to break into her Floral Ridge Drive home. Just after 4 p.m. on Oct. 1, Gwinnett County Police were called to a Archmont Circle home after a resident returned home and discovered the house had been burglarized. Approximately 45 minutes later, police were dispatched to a Town Manor Court home, also located in Hamilton Mill, in response to another burglary.
The resident advised someone had made entry to the house at some point between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. by smashing the glass out of the back door.
According to the police report, the burglars went through "pretty much" every room in the home. The resident said a safe in the bedroom closet was also broken into, but nothing was taken as far as she could tell.
Several pieces of jewelry were reported missing, as well as a shadow box containing a baseball bat autographed by Andruw Jones. The total value of the stolen items was estimated to be $900.
The case is listed as active.
