Burglars target several homes up for sale

Bethany Nolin can’t believe the kind of things thieves took from the Danville home she’s trying to sell.

“They ate food that we had already eaten out of. They took salt and pepper shakers. They took twin sheets off the beds, ”Lightning McQueen” sheets,” said the crime victim Monday.

It all happened Saturday morning while she was away at her new house.

“Our neighbor saw a black SUV back into the garage and I also drive a black SUV, they thought it was me and they didn’t think anything of it, until we showed up a few hours later,” she said.

Police were called and while they were at the house on Betsy Ross Avenue.

“We noticed the house across the street was also for sale. The officer took it upon himself to go and check on it, and found the same type of burglary,” Danville Assistant Police Chief Tony Gray said.

Two more houses were hit sometime Sunday on nearby Creekside and Candlewood Drives.

“They have to be just crazy. The stuff they took. No rhyme or reason to it. Anything they could, they took,” Nolin said.

Police say the crooks also went into each home’s crawl space and cut out copper water and air conditioning lines. They say the thieves could also be posing as a HVAC repair person, and are likely driving a black or dark colored SUV.

Danville Police say the St. James AME Church was also hit. The church reported similar damage to its air conditioning system.
