A magnolia woman got the shock of her life this morning when her home was burglarized while she was in bed. (from the SPD blotter)
Officers responded to a report of an occupied burglary at a house in the 3300 block of 38 Ave W in Magnolia. This morning just shortly after 9:00 a.m., the victim reported that she was asleep in her bedroom when she heard the door bell ring 3 times.
The victim stated that the bedroom door next to her bedroom opened up, and then her bedroom door opened up. The victim hid in her bed, under her covers, until the suspects removed the covers and exclaimed that someone was in the house.
The suspects ran out of the house in a westward direction away from the scene. Officers arrived and canvassed the neighborhood on foot and located two witnesses who observed the suspects running from the scene.
Officers conducted an area check with negative results. Officers found that the suspects gained entry inside the home by prying open the back door.
The suspects are described as two black males in their 20s. The investigation continues.
Just in case you were starting to think all was bad in our nabe… we received this email today:
Yesterday while walking back to our daughter’s house here in Magnolia my credit card and $14 fell out of my pocket un-noticed. I went back to the spot where it probably happened, but the card and money were gone. I cancelled the card. About an hour later Chase bank called to tell me someone had turned in the card and the money! I would love to thank the person(s) who were so kind to do this. This community has some very nice people living here.
