Talladega police are investigating a slew of home burglaries and thefts during the run up to the holiday season.

According to Capt. John McCoy, the first of these to be reported was at a residence on the 100 block of East Battle Street Friday between 11 a.m. and noon. Two electronic heaters valued at $110 were reported stolen, although there was no evidence of forced entry. There is a suspect in this case, McCoy said.

The next incident was just a few hours later, Friday between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the 130 block of Chandler Street. An unknown type revolver was the only item listed as stolen in this case, and there were no witnesses or suspects listed in the report.

Saturday, investigators responded to a break-in on the 500 block of Oak Circle between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Miscellaneous jewelry was stolen, although a detailed list was not available Tuesday. There were no witnesses or suspects in this case, either.

The victims on the 800 block of Davis Street were home Saturday between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. when someone attempted to break into their house. A window was broken and a security sensor and pad were damaged, but it was not clear Tuesday whether or not anything had been taken.

The next reported incident was also on Saturday, on the 300 block of Oak Street between 8 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. An RCA TV valued at $600 was stolen, and there were no witnesses or suspects listed in this case, either.

Officers responded to an alarm call on McAlpine Street Sunday at 11:15 a.m. and found an air conditioning unit damaged, but nothing appeared to have been stolen, McCoy said.

Although there was no forced entrance, McCoy said officers were also investigating an incident on the 300 block of Coffee Street Sunday afternoon. The suspects used a ruse to get into the home of a visually impaired victim and then stole an LG TV valued at $1,600.

Talladega police are also investigating a burglary at Barber Sales sometime between Friday and Sunday. The door and lock were damaged, but again, it was not clear whether anything had been stolen.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents should contact the Talladega Police Department at 256-362-4508 or call the anonymous tip line at 256-299-0011.
