A family that had been away for two days returned home Friday, June 17 to reportedly find several items missing from inside the residence, including a laptop computer and a Wii gaming console.

Waldo County Chief Deputy Bob Keating said police received the complaint from the Hope Road residents at about 10:30 p.m. Friday, shortly after the family arrived home.

Keating said the complainant stated that as she entered her home, she started to notice several items were missing. Initially, Keating said, she noticed an HP Pavilion laptop was missing, and upon further investigation saw that the Wii gaming console was also absent from its usual place in the living room.

Keating said at that point, the family opted to call police.

Deputy Kevin Littlefield responded, and Keating said Sgt. Dale Brown assisted at the scene. After additional inspection of the home, it was discovered that a Nikon digital camera was also missing from the home, as well as what Keating described as an older iPod Nano.

There was no sign of forced entry at the residence, Keating said, but the homeowners said they believe they left the front and back doors unlocked while they were away.

Anyone with information about the break-in is asked to contact the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office at 338-2040.
