BURGLARY: A victim reported to sheriff's deputies on Monday that his landlord — an uncle — without evicting him, changed the locks and removed his property from his Ide Road residence. According to the report, the victim said he was never formally evicted and never abandoned residency. The victim added that his mother, who is the landlord's sister, is the actual owner of the house and lets the uncle maintain it. The victim had been staying with his father, in order to help care for him. When the victim went to check on his residence, he saw that the locks had been changed, and he could see through a window that his belonings were missing. He was unsuccessful in reaching his uncle. Deputies contacted the landlord-uncle, who told them that the victim had moved out and the victim's friends had picked up his belongings. The victim disputed that, and said his mother received a text message from his landlord-uncle indicating "that he was getting rid of his stuff." The mother told him not to remove any of the victim's property. The report said that the victim "has a strong sense" that the landlord-uncle has sold his property without authorization in an attempt to make money. The value of items missing is $3,940. An investigation is continuing.


BURGLARY: A Ridge Road man reported Thursday that sometime between Sept. 10 and Sept. 13 someone entered his residence and stole a Ruger Mini 14 rifle and three 30-round clips from a bedroom. The stolen property is valued at $750.00.


BURGLARY: An Ertman Road man reported on Friday that sometime between 1:45 p.m. and 505 p.m., while he and his wife were out shopping, an unknown person entered the house and removed $80 in cash, a .22 caliber Ruger revolver valued at $450, ammunition and $3,000 worth of jewelry.
