The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office reported the following incidents:
JEWELRY STOLEN: On Jan. 4, a Bogart woman reported she returned home from a flight overseas only to find that someone had been in her luggage and stole $7,520 worth of jewelry. The jewelry included a wedding ring and a heirloom ring. The woman said she called the airline and it confirmed her suspicions that the rings were stolen during her route. If employees of the airline had searched the bag, they would have left a TSA tag inside the bag. However, there was no such document and items were obviously moved around inside the luggage.

DAMAGE: On Jan. 7, Deputy David Gueth met with a 22-year-old woman who reported that someone threw eggs at her vehicle and her apartment at Athens Ridge Apartments while she was out of town. This is the second time the vandalism has occurred and she couldn’t name a possible suspect.
