Burglary from an outbuilding was reported to local law enforcement Wednesday.

According to a report filed by deputy Robert O’Daniel, he was dispatched to a Lebanon Road address and spoke with Sheila Bridges.

Bridges said someone had broken into her storage building and taken a weed cutter, drill, leaf blower, an air compressor and two chainsaws.

Bridges told the deputy she had last seen the items Saturday.

The building had been secured and pry marks were evident on the door of the building.

The value of the items taken was listed in the report as $1,050.

Investigation is continuing.

- Approximately $1,000 in jewelry was reportedly taken during a possible theft at a Benton Pike residence.

Marion Cross reported a family member had spent the night at her home Monday.

Cross went to work Tuesday and when she returned, the guest and several pieces of jewelry were discovered missing.

- According to a report filed by deputy Jeremy Guthrie, missing jewelry included a gold necklace with a diamond-cross pendant, a large gold-and-diamond cluster ring and a small gold-and-diamond cluster ring. The loss was estimated at $1,000.

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