The victim told deputies the suspect entered her home by breaking a glass panel, then unlocked the door from the inside. Once inside, the suspect is accused of taking a 60-inch flat screen TV, 50-inch flat-screen TV, 32-inch flat-screen TV and a Sony PlayStation, the report stated.

No suspect information was provided.

What?

I hate this happened to this person, hope they catch the person. My question is how does a 22 year old have a 55 in. and a 60 in. plus two others. I am more than twice her age and my best is a 37 in. Oh well, maybe in my next life. Not!

60, 50, 32, and sony playstation

I know Deen Avenue, and I cannot think of a house in that neighborhood that would need 3 TVs that size, much less have the space for them. I hate that this happened to someone who is, I am sure gainfully employed, probably has to have 2 jobs, comes home worn out from the stress of the jobs, an needs to relax in front of her big screen TV and play a few games on the play station. Life is a &$%#.

Don't be so quick to judge...

To wildman and geecheeriverman don't be so quick to say how a person so young can own all of that. It doesn't matter her age or what type of neighborhood she lives in, it still don't give anyone the right to enter your home and steal your stuff! It could have easily been your house that was broken into. I can sympathize with this lady because I am a young, well educated homeowner that works extremely hard for all the things I've purchased to put in my home.

I know that area very well

I know that area very well and I resent someone insinuating a 22 year old there doesn't have the means to own several large televisions. There are a lot of well-heeled, but hard-working people living in modest homes. They want to have a decent standard of living and not be "house poor". There are some young people that have found their niche and make a good living. Some people that are in the video gaming business or information technology keep their skills honed on large TV's, or dual use TV/computer screens too. At the least, maybe she is just well provided for by a family member. Just one street down and around a few corners there are some very large, long-established homes I considered mansions compared to my home when I was a youngster. If you own something, no one has the right to break in there and take it! It is one of the worst experiences someone can have.

My thought is...

My first thought is: who in the heck still has a playstation 2? My second thought is: who would even bother to report it being stolen; let alone, bother to steal it.

The real crime is that they owned a Playstation 2 at a time when the Playstation 4 is thriving.

A vizio 70 inch tv is now

A vizio 70 inch tv is now about 1478 at wallmart and an rca 60 is 799 at best buy and the vizio 63 inch is 678.00. Not too much and most that work can afford that.

Why are folks still

Why are folks still victimizing the victim??? I went into my first biz when I was about 15. By the time I was nineteen we had quite an operation and we worked hard deep into the night to keep up. No one even asked who the suspect could be, what clues there may be to who did it or where these items may turn up... Maybe that's why burglaries are back on the rise??? If they hit that house and are NOT caught SOMEONE ELSE IS NEXT. With the bus system they can ride anywhere, steal you blind hide it, come back and take your stuff away... We need to stop them before they do. If you know who or where this burglar may be PLEASE call the RCSO, Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS, or TEXT/EMAIL your tips to TIPS@AugustaCrimeStoppers.org. Where you remain anonymous and keep thieves out of your home.

I guess if someone who lived in that neighborhood had a nice car someone stealing it would be OK. I didn't know where you lived determined what you could own.

Maybe she inherited the property and inherited the televisions, or they were given as gifts. Who knows? Who cares?

flipa, we don't ask because

flipa, we don't ask because the police don't know, there are no clues, and the items are already sold to somebody who doesn't mind buying stolen property.

The arrest rate in Augusta is atrocious, that woman stands almost no chance of getting her property back.

Hope she had good insurance.

And she needs to change her lock to a deadbolt that uses a key to unlock it.

Personally, I think the burglar is somebody in the neighborhood, and that knew she had that there.
