Dorcas burglaries raise concern

Published: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 17:52 PM.

Coil said she believes that the burglars took the truck keys that have a house key on it and used it to enter her home. She also thought the burglars locked the door behind them and left the keys in her husband's truck.

Coil said that the family never locked their vehicles at night, but they do lock the house’s doors and windows. She said that she and the rest of the family ensure all doors are locked before they go to sleep. Another thing that puzzles her is that her two little dogs didn't make a sound that night.

Following the burglary, she said that her dog gave the entire family a scare when it started barking. Diane feared that the burglars had returned but realized it was only a deer near the house.

The Coil family did not have any serial numbers for the stolen items, according to a police report. Officers enter serial numbers into the National Crime Information Center database. 

Coil said a burglary also occurred on County Road 393.

Joel Bundrick’s property was hit the same night and one item, a chainsaw valued at $600, was taken.

"I only got to use (the chainsaw) one time," Bundrick said.
