Guitars, electronics, jewelry and even loose change were among the items taken during a March 31 burglary in the Hamilton Mill subdivision in Dacula.
The Ridgemill Circle resident said he left his home at approximately 8:45 a.m. Monday morning and returned four hours later to find his home had been burglarized. In an interview with NGwinnett.com, the resident indicated the burglar or burglars had opened drawers, thrown back covers, lifted seat cushions and searched closets.
"They went through the whole house," he said.
The burglary is one of three burglaries reported in Hamilton Mill last month. On March 26, another Ridgemill Circle home was burglarized. The following day, burglars struck at a Carriage Glen Way home. Two suspicious incidents which may have been attempted burglaries were also reported. On March 6, a resident was at home when an unknown person cut a hole in the glass of the first pane of a basement window. The person or persons who broke the glass were gone by the time the Autumn Sage Drive resident made it downstairs to investigate the noise. On March 28, a Hamilton Mill homeowner contacted police after her house alarm was triggered shortly before 7 a.m. No entry was made, but the woman indicated someone had tried to open one of the doors of her Carriage Glen Way residence.
