A vacant residence on Wells Avenue was broken into between Sept. 29 and Oct. 2, according to Interim Police Chief Jason Busby.
The list of stolen items was incomplete, but included two wall clocks valued at $300, a Tiffany lamp valued at $100, five Depression plates valued at $150, an antique chandelier valued at $300 and a coffee table valued at $50. There were no witnesses or suspects in this case.
The next reported break-in was on Howard Street, sometime before 6 p.m. Oct. 2. Items stolen here included a 55 inch flat screen TV valued at $900, a 48 inch flat screen TV valued at $800 and 20 Play Station games valued at $1,200. In this case, Busby said, there were witnesses, who were able to identify two named suspects. The suspects remained at large Thursday afternoon, however.
An attempted break-in at a different address on Howard Street later that same night was thwarted by the resident being home. However, it was too dark for the resident to see who was trying to break in, Busby said.
Yet another residential burglary was reported on Pearl Street sometime overnight between Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning. The only item listed as stolen was a gold necklace valued at $400.
The next two incidents were both reported Thursday at College Hills Apartments.
In the first incident, the front window screen was reported damaged, but the only item listed as stolen was the rear window screen.
In the second, the front window screen was reported stolen, along with a Samsung Galaxy cell phone valued at $650.
The last incident took place on Brignoli Street, where the resident was also able to scare off a burglar before he entered the home. In this case, however, the would-be burglar was able to steal white China dishes valued at $300 and a silver tea set valued at $500.
Anyone with information on any of these incidents should contact the Talladega Police Department at 256-362-4508 or call the city’s anonymous tip line at 256-299-0011.
