Alcohol Among Items Stolen in Burglary

Putnam County authorities are investigating an unusual burglary reported near Monterey on Tuesday. A resident of Reeves Road told Deputy Sonny Farley that he arrived home to find that someone had stolen a computer and a television, along with a bottle of gin, a bottle of whiskey, and five bottles of wine. In addition, the thief apparently went through every room in the house except for the kitchen and made off with at least two prescription pill bottles -- one for Xanax and one for Oxycodone. Police say those two drugs are among those most often abused and sold in the street trade. Farley found a shoe print on a rear door, which may have been the means used to gain access to the home.
