CUMMING, Ga. — Someone broke into a man’s home and destroyed over $5,000 in valuables, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

A Cumming resident told deputies he left his home on Oct. 31 for the Georgia-Florida football game and returned on Nov. 4.

When he came home at about 3:15 p.m., he saw what looked like pry marks on his back door.

Deputies cleared the home and saw all the furniture cushions and bedspreads had been stabbed and damaged.

The wood furniture through out the home had been cut up and dishes smashed on the floor. His picture frames were broken and his golf clubs were bent.

Deputies said the suspects also poured bleach on the bedroom carpets.

The man left his 1994 Chevrolet Corvette parked inside the garage and the suspects slashed the tires and scratched the headlight covers.

The man said he kept his pistol inside the car and it had been taken.

Deputies found holes punched in the garage walls.

The man estimated the amount of items stolen or destroyed to be about $5,800.
