A Dacula woman learned two of her vehicles had been stolen and her house burglarized after a man who had been sent to install a new security system found the home unsecured.
According to the police report, the woman’s home had been previously burglarized so her son arranged for an alarm company representative to stop by on Aug. 12 to set up a security system. When the alarm company representative arrived, he noticed the garage door was open. The representative contacted the son who then notified his mother. When the woman arrived home, she realized that not only had her 1999 red Corvette been stolen, but her 2008 blue Honda Element had been taken as well. The thief or thieves attempted to start a 1985 El Camino that was parked on the property, but could not due to the fact the vehicle did not have an alternator. According to the victim, a $3,000 diamond wedding ring belonging to her late daughter was in the Corvette at the time of the theft.
Upon checking the interior of the home, the woman noticed her big screen television was also missing. The woman also informed police that her 20-year-old grandson, who shares the home with her, had closed their joint checking account after emptying it of $5,000. The woman said she had not been in contact with her grandson since the previous morning. The officer tried repeatedly to reach the grandson, but was unsuccessful.
The case is listed as active.
