James Saffels said someone kicked a door in at his residence and took a jewelry box, a laptop computer and jewelry.

The thieves apparently went through several rooms of the home, according to a report filed by deputy David Michaels.

Detectives with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene to collect fingerprints and other evidence.

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