The Knox County Sheriff's Office is investigating a burglary at a Main Street home.

The residents contacted police shortly after noon Wednesday, Jan. 10. They had been away from the home for a few days, according to Knox County Sheriff Donna Dennison.

Someone had forced their way into the home, knocked items over, gone through items, and trashed the house, the sheriff said.

The department does not yet have a listen of items stolen from the residence, she said.
