Barn on Lane Creek Road Burglarized

An Oconee County Sheriff's investigator says the crime, reported on Sunday, may be related to others in the area that were reported last Tuesday.

A $400 Milwaukee band saw taken from a barn on a property in the 1400 block of Lane Creek Road is the latest report of burglary in the Bogart area.

According to an incident report on file at the Oconee County Sheriff's Office, the homeowner believes the burglary occurred sometime between midnight on Oct. 12 and 5 p.m. on Oct. 14.

Investigator Dave Stauffacher says he's considering the possibility that the crime may be related to two entered autos and a burglary that occurred at residences in the 1500 and 1800 blocks of Lane Creek Road overnight Oct. 8- Oct. 9.

In those cases, a 5-gallon gas can and GPS unit were taken from one property;  tools, weapons and cash were missing a truck; and a ring, MP3 player and a nickel bag of marijuana reportedly were taken from another vehicle.

The cases are under investigation.
