A burglar not only took the time to rummage through a shed, but also hung around long enough to raid the victim’s garden as well.
Gwinnett County Police were called to the 1300 block of Mineral Springs Road on July 30 after a property owner discovered his shed had been burglarized.
According to the incident report, the side door to the shed had been pried open and two Stihl chain saws taken.
“A path could be seen going through the dew covered grass leading away from the barn into the woods,” the officer wrote in the report.
Along that path, the officer recovered a bag of peppers that had been plucked from the victim’s garden as well as a watering can that had last been seen next to the shed.
The property owner has a video system that covers the shed and advised police he would contact his alarm company to obtain a copy of the surveillance footage.
The case is listed as active.
