ATHENS, Ga. — A burglar snatched $1,600 in jewelry from Athens-Clarke County Mayor Nancy Denson’s home sometime during the last several weeks, police said.

Denson reported missing diamond earrings, a 1976 University of Georgia class ring and a watch at 3:30 p.m. Friday, and did not name anyone she thought may have taken the items, police said.

Probably someone with access

Probably someone with access to the house. Also, burglars don't rob, they commit burglaries. Robbery involves a face to face confrontation!

This drives me up a wall! Why

This drives me up a wall! Why can't "professional" journalists use proper terminology? I know that sensationalism sells, and that "robbed" sounds better than "stole" or "burglarized", but why can't they get this correct? How does a burglar "snatch" items? I remember a few years ago when someone at the paper thought that it would be a good idea to point out all the mistakes in police reports by printing excerpts verbatim, with misspelled words and improper grammar. Maybe I should start a blog and post local reporters flaws, to highlight the error of their ways.
