Kristy Campbell, of the 1800 block of Claystone Way, said someone entered her house between 11 p.m. Saturday and 4:15 a.m. Sunday, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

Investigators say the burglar forced open the home’s rear door. Campbell said the home is equipped with an alarm, but it was not on at the time of the burglary.

Campbell said the burglar locked her dog in a spare bedroom.

Among the items stolen were more than $5,800 worth of electronics and $2,500 worth of chrome rims that were outside the home.

It is amazing how something

It is amazing how something that looks so cheap (chrome rims) can cost so much. What a waste of money! To each his own, I guess. I am thankful the dog is okay, though. That's more important.

Time to get a New Dog

and either use the alarm or turn it off and save the money every month.

also Town & Country SD has been in the news for some serious stuff the last 2 years. Murders a few times, drugs a lot and more than its share of burglaries.

Chrome rims, indeed!

It's probably someone that knows her and knew she wasn't at home. Burglary is one thing, home invasion is another.

But I'll tell you, if I spent $2500 on chrome rims- serious cash- I wouldn't leave them outside for someone to see and steal. But that's just me.

That's what she gets for buying an attack Pekingese.

Expensive S%&^

That's some expensive S%&^ !! How much is the car/truck worth, that the "rims" were supposed to be attached ? To be gone, not set the alarm, and then be surprised when your stuff is stolen ?? Hope you have receipts and good insurance. Glad they didn't hurt the dog, else we might have to go on a hunting expedition. Reminds me of a California trip one time. Saw a guy and his girlfriend disarm his talking alarm on a truck with probably $2000 worth of wheels/tires on a $300 truck that the rust molecules were holding hands, to hold the truck together - Unbelievable.
