Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office
A woman at an Ivey Drive address reported a burglary occurring around 1:43 a.m. June 3. She told the deputy that she woke up from her sleep when she heard the front door shut. She added that she assumed it was her boyfriend coming home, but after waiting a few minutes she realized that he did not come down the hallway to the bedroom as he usually does. When walking into the living room to check and see where he was, she discovered that her 32-inch Funai brand flat screen TV was no longer there.
