A Dell laptop computer, a Samsung 32-inch flatscreen television, a topaz ring, sapphire ring, alexandria ring, a butterfly ring, a white gold cross pendant and a pair or diamond earrings were missing.

Evidence indicated that several doors had pry marks.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Safety Belt Checkpoints in Bradley County beginning Friday.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the drivers license laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
