Tech Student Finds Apartment Burgled

Cookeville police are investigating a burglary discovered Monday morning at an apartment complex on North Willow Avenue. Police say a Tennessee Tech student had returned from a weekend visit to her hometown to find that someone had broken in and stolen a laptop computer and a television set. The burglary is similar to one reported at a nearby apartment complex on North Willow in which thieves pried open two locks to gain access and make off with a video game console and a digital camera. And, during the same time frame, the sheriff's department received a report from a resident of an apartment on Gainesboro Grade, stating that someone had broken into his home and stolen a laptop, two guitars, and a 27-inch television.
