Burglars stole $1,600 from two security boxes at the Children’s Friend Learning Center on Saturday, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

Around 3:30 p.m., police were called to 3615 Wheeler Road in reference to an alarm. A deputy responded and noticed some damage but was unable to enter because of a fence, the report said.

An employee, Susan Lovelace, told officers that the burglars shattered a side window of the business to enter, then pried open the door to the office. Once inside, they pried open the security boxes and took the cash.

The report said Lovelace told officers the thieves left a torque tool, a telescopic magnet and an elastic band from a pair of underwear at the scene.

Hi CobaltGeorge! I'm glad you

Hi CobaltGeorge!

I'm glad you enjoy your freedom and feel that way about the police. I hope the burglars think that way too, but how come the jail house continues to fill to capacity with all those smart people?

So incomplete . . .

No good description. No photos. No information to let the reader of the newspaper get any kind of image in his/her brain. It's a meaningless newstory. It should not be published in this trashy condition.

How does Susan Lovelace know that there was $1,600 in the security lockboxes?

If you was you worked at a

If you was you worked at a job and was someone besides a hired hand then there is a good chance you would know how much money is in there.PEOPLE DO HAVE LOG/MONEY BOOKS. But the last time I checked when there is a break in cops dont leave because they cant get in.... As far as pictures...well I guess the officers didnt do a complete investigation. No one care unless its there house/office that gets broken into.

Little Lamb, really? Of

Little Lamb, really? Of course she knows how much money was in there, she put it there.

And yes, the police frequently will leave if they can't get access. They are police officers, not mountain climbers. They call the emergency contact, if they can't get in, they leave. What's done is done and they will be contacted later. They know that. You've been watching too much Adam-12, StuccoDawg.

With all the Saggy pants fools waddling around,

spotting the guy missing the Underwear elastic band should be easy.

If RCSO does spot him, the duck-waddle chase should be short.

Seriously 2 things tho:
1. Around 3:30 p.m is an odd daylight hours for a burglary?
2. whoever did it knows way too much about the business operations and likely is close to someone that works or worked there recently.
