At 5:00pm on January 16, 2018 an unknown male drove on to the property and attended to the fridge. The male stole a quantity of  cash from the jar and left the residence in a motor vehicle. At 1:09pm on February 4th, 2018 the same male attended the residence, removed 9 cartons of eggs from the fridge and cash from the jar. The unknown male was captured on surveillance and a follow up investigation led to his identity.
