LUDOWICI — Two burglaries occurred in the Davenport Acres subdivision of Long County in a span of four days, according to Long County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Ty Smith.
He said on March 19, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. the home of Guy W. Sing, 266 Bell Road, was broken into. Someone apparently kicked in the front door.
Smith said Sing had been at work and when he got home he discovered that several items including a flat-screen TV, two laptop computers and firearms missing.
Smith also said that on March 23, Sophia Smoke, who lives at 12 Davenport Acres, reported her home was broken into. Someone had kicked in the rear door.
Smith said Smoke reported items including two flat-screen TVs and jewelry were stolen.
Smith also reported a witness saw a pewter colored automobile that resembled a Ford Crown Victoria with black rims stop in front of Smoke’s home about 10:15 a.m.
A man was driving and the witness told Smith a second man, who was carrying something, ran up to the car and got in the backseat. The only description was that the men were black and that the second man had short dreadlocks.
The detective said the crimes are being investigated and that a reward is being offered for information leading to arrests and convictions. The amount had not been determined.
If anyone has information about the burglaries, they are urged to call the LCSD at 545-2118 and ask for Smith. Information will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
