Military awards, clothing and other personal items belonging to a military service member stationed overseas were stolen from a locked storage unit.

Daphne Lamon Swinford reported that the lock was removed from the storage unit at Economy Self Storage, 3661 Peach Orchard Road. The items were taken and the unit cleaned, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The items belong to Kelly Clarke Robinson, an employee of the Department of Defense whose listed address is in Hephzibah. Electronics valued at $1,450, an unknown amount of clothing and shoes, $500 worth of motorcycle gear, lawn equipment, cookware, personal papers and family photo albums were taken.

The theft occurred between Oct. 21 and Oct. 24 but was not reported until Thursday. No further information about Swinford’s military branch or deployment was immediately available.

Aren't the owners of those

Aren't the owners of those things responsible? Don't they have to provide security and so on?

A long time ago I opened what

A long time ago I opened what I thought was my unit at a storage place. To my surprise the contents were not mine! I locked it back up, and searched further. I have a terrible memory, so I checked the number I carried in my wallet. My unit was further down, and I had gotten the number wrong. The point is my key opened more than one lock...thus who knows who could get into mine?
