A small television was taken from one of two parked pickup trucks, but officials have retrieved evidence which the perpetrator possibly left behind when the thefts were committed.

A Sheriff’s Office report indicated the thefts occurred at a Spring Place Road address.

According to a report filed by deputy Mitchell Roe of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, he spoke with Allison Ledford who had reported someone took a piece of wood from the bed of her truck and broke the driver’s side window to gain entry to the truck’s cab.

Once inside the vehicle, several compact discs were taken. Another victim, Casey Correia, said someone used the same piece of wood to break out a window in her truck as well.

The television was taken from Correia, according to the report.

Roe collected evidence which was left at the scene of the two thefts.

Correia’s television was valued at $240. Damage to Ledford’s truck as well as loss was estimated at $240.

Investigation is continuing.
