CONYERS -- A resident of Jimi Lane reported that his house was burglarized twice in less than 24 hours.
According to reports by the Conyers Police Department, the 24-year-old resident called police at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday to report that someone had broken into his house and stolen nearly $2,000 in clothing and electronics.
The victim told police that he had gone to work at about 9 p.m. Saturday and returned home around 3 a.m. Sunday to find his back door had been kicked in and his house had been searched.
Police also found that a top pane in a window in the back bedroom had been broken from the inside and the bottom window lifted open.
Taken in the burglary were numerous pairs of blue jeans, a 42-inch flat screen TV, several pairs of boots, an Pirates jacket and other articles of clothing.
Police were called back to the residence Sunday evening by the victim who said he had gone to visit his mother at about 10:30 a.m. and returned at about 6:30 p.m. to find that someone had been in his house, left the bathroom light on and messed up the sheets on his bed. This time the thieves reportedly stole two pairs of shoes, including one pair of Timberland boots.
The victim told police that earlier in the day he had been told by a woman in the neighborhood that she had seen a group of guys hanging around his house on the previous day. The victim later saw a group of five young people in the area. A male in the group was wearing a pair of Timberland boots and a pair of jeans similar to those that were stolen from him, according to the victim. He told police he tried to talk to the group, but they ran from him.
