Deputy Dustin McCall of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the Broomfield Road area, in response to a burglary call placed by Sara Diaz.

Diaz relayed to McCall that she was inside her residence when she heard a loud crashing sound.

Diaz reported she sprang up from her seat and ran to the door, only to see a person later identified as the burglary suspect entering a red van or SUV and leaving the scene.

McCall verified forceful entry by noting a smeared shoeprint on the broken door.

A short time later, Eleazar Diaz arrived and made a check of the home, to discover a city of Cleveland-owned Dell XPS laptop had been stolen. Diaz advised that he would obtain the laptop information and forward it the Sheriff’s Office, at which point an investigation will begin.

- Deputy Anthony Liner responded to a theft call on Varnell Road.

Teresa Schuiling placed the call when she noticed her mauve-colored, floral-pattered bicycle had been removed from her front porch. The bicycle was purchased from Scott’s Bicycle, and is valued at $600.

- Deputy Doug Graham took a call to Brookcrest Drive, in reference to a reported theft of property.

Aaron Franckhauser advised Graham that a 9-foot Pegasus brand kayak, maroon and black in color, and a 6-by-12-foot wire-mesh utility trailer had been removed from his yard.

Franckhauser also added that a neighbor reported seeing a newer-model gray truck pull into his driveway, hook up the trailer, and leave with it. The combined value of the stolen kayak and trailer is approximately $1,500.
