Police say two men stole more than $800 worth of electronics and a small weapons arsenal from a Hephzibah home Friday.

About 10:40 a.m., Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 1800 block of Hephzibah-McBean Road, where a witness, Lori Williams, of Hephzibah, said she was driving past the home and noticed a gray Nissan Altima backed up to the front door, according to an incident report.

Willams called the homeowner, Benita Dillard, 58. Dillard said the car shouldn’t be there, and when Willams began to call 911, two black men came out of the house and drove away toward Peach Orchard Road, according to the report.

The burglars had forced their way into the house through a side door and ransacked the residence. In addition to electronics, the suspects stole a .50-caliber muzzleloader rifle, a loaded .40-caliber handgun, a Bushmaster AR-15 with a 31-round magazine and a Benelli 12-gauge shotgun. The guns are valued at more than $3,200, according to the report.

The suspects were described as about 6 feet tall and wearing all-gray clothes.

The fact the burglars knew

The fact the burglars knew the WWWW&H should be a warning to the home owner. They did not just happen by this one time.

Get an LOUD Alarm and Cell Phone based pager system along with a 45+ min Fire/Breech rate Real Gun Safe.

GC what would you recommend?

Living the dream...x2.

Living the dream...x2.

Sometimes, if I think someone has been checking out my place, I pull my vehicle behind the tree line out back so that the house looks like no one is home. Then I just sit and wait for a couple of yo-yo's like these to show up.

The cops cannot stop lowlife scum like these. Some homeowner has to put them down. Do your duty. They are no better than rats...bait them and kill them. It actually solves two problems. It takes a lifetime, repeat offender criminal totally out....and it reduces the number of people we have to spend money on to lock them up multiple times.

Incidents like this will only increase in our area as the "city" continues to dump their Section 8 out this way. Believe me, I have added the gray Nissan Altima to my watch list. It's probably stolen too, but you never know.

Gray Nissan Altima

Just Googled the image of one of these cars.

Not what I would have envisioned as a vehicle to store or hide a lot
of stolen items in?

A VW bug could easily hold $800 worth of electronics and these guns. What does the car have to do with it other than it is part of the description?
