Lionel Street woman finds damaged home looted

A 76-year-old woman who was staying with family members after a tree fell on her house last month returned home this week and discovered her home had been ransacked.

The victim told police that a family member was driving by the Lionel Street home on Thursday and saw an open window, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s report.

They discovered burglars had stolen her washing machine, dryer and an air-conditioning unit, the report said. The woman said family members had tried to nail the windows shut several weeks ago but did not finish.
