Hopkinsville Police are investigating a major burglary on Locust Grove Road from last week.
The incident happened sometime between Tuesday morning and Friday night, according to Jason and Chavonne Carol of 131 Locust Grove, who told Officer Daniel Gray that they were out of town during that period and had all of their possessions boxed up in preparation for a move to Fort Hood, Texas.
While they were gone, someone entered their house and took just over 18-thousand dollars worth of their property—including guns, electronics, expensive jewelry and piggy banks.
The perpetrator also ransacked the home and let an animal out of its cage. A suspect is listed on the report and the investigation continues.
