Suspected Loot from Theft Found

Clinton Public Safety was dispatched to a residence on the Northwest side of town at 3:34 yesterday afternoon to investigate a break-in. A woman indicated her son had been arrested the previous day and she was not feeling well so she spent the night with her mother out-of-town. When she returned yesterday afternoon she found her back door had been forced open. Officer Josh Byers noted the bolt lock was bent. The resident did not notice anything missing, but did note that her son’s bedroom had been rummaged through. With permission of the resident, officers searched the bedroom and kitchen. They reported finding women’s jewelry, a $50 bill with “fake” written on it and keys to a newer model Saturn automobile. Ten cell phones and some cell phone batteries were found on the bedroom floor, as well as an Apple Ipod Mini. The son had been arrested the previous day in connection with an auto break-in. The materials were taken into evidence.
