On December 24, Cpl. Kevin Stout of the Madison Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to a home on SW Boundary St. in reference to a burglary complaint. Upon arriving at the scene, Stout was told the burglary had happened while the victim explained he had left for work at approximately 2 p.m. the previous day, and returned home at 2 a.m. on December 24. The complainant did not realize any items were missing until he woke up later that day and walked into his living room.
According to the report, items that were stolen included a Playstation 3 and a wireless controller. The victim also reported damage to a mini-blind in his dining room rear window. Other evidence at the scene that showed possible signs of burglary included a door that appeared to be locked from the outside, a footprint on the victim’s concrete carport and other potential evidence.
The burglar is facing charges of burglary and felony theft. While the culprit has not been identified, the Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information regarding this crime to please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 973-4001.
