Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. — After a two-week vacation, a family came home to find every room ransacked, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On June 24, a man in the 5000 block of Larch Lane told deputies he came home and noticed the basement door unlocked.

When he went inside, he saw every room was rummaged through.

The dressers, desks, closets and end tables were picked through and left open.

The man said his wife is still out of town, so the total amount of missing items is unknown. From what he can account for, about $5,700 in valuables were taken.

He said the burglar took a $4,000 Nikon camera and equipment, a 9mm pistol valued at $560, and hollow points and practice rounds valued at $300.

The burglar also took two 12 packs of Coca-Cola.
