And if the burglar is found,

And if the burglar is found, they will get little or no punishment.

"Police could find evidence

"Police could find evidence of a forced entry at the home."

"Police could find"?

They could? Why not just say "Police found", or was it supposed to read "Police could not find"

Yep. If he gets caught he

Yep. If he gets caught he will just play Let's Make A Deal with the DA and be back on the streets grinnin' and skinnin'. The DA and the judges do not really care about protecting the public from a future crime. All they care about is clearing their case load. Somehow our justice system is now convinced that all that is required is a tick mark on the wall for a conviction, via a guilty plea deal in exchange for probation, and that is good enough. IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!!! I don't want to hear about prison crowding as an excuse. Stack them in there like cordwood and when the feds complain, ask Obama for some Stimulus to build and staff more prisons. That would be the first good use of any Stimulus funds.

Lots of goodies in one household? It's not uncommon for a person to have more than one tv or gamesystem.

My home was broken into in

My home was broken into in late March. The thief got every single bit of jewelry I owned, total value over 10,000 dollars yet I got no help from Richmond County at all. I have not once heard from the investigator assigned to my case since I called him the day after it happened. My jewelry was important and most pieces were family heirlooms that cannot be replaced. Tv's and video games can be replaced. What makes one person's misfortune news when it happens everyday?

"Crazy" Do you have his name,

"Crazy" Do you have his name, case #, date of incident and other pertinent information recorded? Did he give you a card or a note with the case # on it? Have you gone to the records department at 401, second floor (706 821-1020) and asked for a copy of the case report (you will need the above info, especially case # for that) and reviewed it to make sure it was reported without errors? Check to make sure your name, address and other info is correct. Make sure the incident was reported correctly. You would be surprised what mistakes can occur, human error does happen. Have you contacted the investigator with any questions or further information? Do that. If you are not satisfied, call and ask for his or her supervisor and let him know your concerns. Document each contact, time, date, and what was discussed. Keep copies of everything. Richmond County has a heavy work load, so the squeaky wheel may get more grease.
