“(The victim) went around to the front door and found it unlocked. He then looked around his house and discovered the items were missing,” the report says. “These items were in specific places throughout the house, and the house was not ransacked, so it appears as though the suspect may have known the location of these items.”

The items stolen include various pieces of jewelry, a Canon digital camera, a Youth Compand Bow, a red tablet computer, a pellet gun and a Samsung cell phone.

No suspect information was available and Springfield police continue their investigation into this burglary.
