When she returned, she discovered the burglary. Criminal Investigations Division detectives determined a rear door to the home had been pried open.

Missing were collectors knives, rings, necklaces, a flat-screen television, a .22-caliber pistol and earrings.

Personal information items were also taken during the break-in, according to the report.

The items taken were valued at over $1,200.

Investigation is continuing.

- A number of mailboxes were damaged in the Pebble Brook Drive addition.

The incidents occurred last week.

According to a report filed by deputy David Harper of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, at least eight mailboxes appeared to have been struck by a car.

Harper noted evidence left at the scene indicated the vehicle would have had front end damage.

Deputies combed the area in search of the suspect vehicle.

Damage was assessed collectively at $800.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Safety Belt Checkpoints in Bradley County beginning May 23.

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 laws of the state.

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