NEWBORN, Ga. – Somebody stole cash and documents from a house and two cars in Newborn after possibly entering the house through an unlocked front door during the early morning hours of May 4, authorities said.
According to a Newton County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the complainant told the responding deputy he heard his dog barking at 1 a.m. He said when he went downstairs at 7:50 a.m., he saw his TV unplugged and sitting on the living room floor and the front door standing “wide open.” The victim reportedly told the deputy the door was not locked when he went to bed.
According to the report, $75 had been removed from the complainant’s girlfriend’s wallet and the wallet had been moved from a counter to an ottoman. Outside, the complainant’s Ford F-150 pick-up and his girlfriend’s Ford Focus had also been gone through. A wallet containing $600 and credit cards along with an envelope with personal documents were reported missing from the truck.
