There were no signs of forced entry to a South McDonald Road residence which had apparently been burglarized while the resident was gone, according to a report filed by deputy Sam Long.

Rosa Heintz returned home Friday evening and noticed the door to her home was not locked. As she walked through her home, Heintz noticed her Apple i-Pad missing from its charging station.

After further investigation, she noticed jewelry, collectors cards, an Apple stream box, two binders containing compact music discs and other items missing.

According to the report, the collectors cards alone were valued at over $6,000.

After arriving at the residence, Long confirmed no forced entry was evident, according to his investigation. Lt. Cheryl Holloway also responded to the home to aid the investigation.

Total loss was estimated at $8,105.

Investigation has been turned over to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.
