POLICE have revealed they are looking for someone who managed to steal thousands of dollars from a man’s home.
A burglar in New Castle, Ohio had stolen a safe that contained over $100,000 and many valuable items.
It is believed that someone went into the victim’s home through an unlocked garage, and was able to get into the safe because it was “already, ajar”, according to law enforcement.
The thief is believed to have taken the entire safe, with everything inside, local NBC affiliate WFMJ reported.
On top of the missing cash, the homeowner is now missing titles to three of his motorcycles, documentation for his two semi trucks, pickup trucks, trailer, property titles for over 44 acres of land, the deed for his home, and the birth certificates for two people.
The police were not able to see the direction where the criminal had fled, but they are currently investigating the situation.
Unfortunately, this is not the only home invasion that has happened recently.
Last month, robbers broke into a woman’s home and locked her inside her bedroom.
She messaged her family on WhatsApp, informing them that, “There’s burglars in the house.”
Before the family was able to get back home, the robbers had stolen an Audi as well as cash and trainers from them.
The woman’s brother explained they almost caught the guys but missed them by a few seconds, according to BirminghamLive.
“Straight away we came[home], we probably missed them by five seconds, but there was contact, when my uncle and cousins pulled up into the drive, the guy was reversing so it was just a matter of seconds.
“Now, my mum and my sister feel very scared, they don’t want to stay home alone, which you can understand. My sister doesn’t want to go to work, she’s taken days off.”
With the toll it has caused his family, he just wants justice for the situation.
“It’s just surprising that these criminals haven’t been caught – especially when they’re coming through the front door. I think three to five burglaries have occurred,” he said.
Police officers have luckily found the Audi and are currently doing tests on it.
“It appears the burglar was working alongside an accomplice in a grey BMW which we’ve been able to establish was on false plates,” law enforcement explained.
“We’re continuing our inquiries to trace the real identity of this car and who the driver was.”
