St. George — The burglary of a summer residence on Dennison Road in St. George was reported Dec. 2, according to police.

Items reported missing included three chainsaws and a Garmin GPS unit, said to Deputy Matthew Elwell of the Knox County Sheriff's Office.

The value of the stolen items totals $1,100. The chainsaws taken were two Husqvarna models and a Stihl model.

The burglary occurred within the last two months and was reported by the owner of the home who returned to do some work on the structure before winter.

The padlock on the storage unit was cut and the perpetrator also unsuccessfully attempted to siphon heating oil from the tank.

There are currently no suspects although Elwell believes the burglary is related to others in the area.

Elwell said the burglar was looking for specific items they could sell.

The home is situated off the main road, so it is unlikely anybody saw or heard anything, he added.
