Home burglar escapes as resident returns

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

A Fairfield Pike resident apparently caught a burglar in the act Monday.

The man told Shelbyville police he returned home at 10:30 a.m., noticed a car in his driveway and asked the occupant, who was in the passenger seat, what they needed.

After being told the persons in the car were supposedly looking for a place in the area that sold puppies, the homeowner went inside to get a phone number and location. When he came back outside, the car was leaving.

The man, who told police he never saw the car's driver, said he noticed a few minutes later that jewelry had been taken from a jewelry box in a bedroom.

Entry was gained by prying a door, police said.

* Money was taken from a wallet in a purse accidently left behind by a customer at Wendy's, Madison Street, for a short time Monday, another Shelbyville police report said.

Drug charges

Police arrested a man Monday who they were told was a drug dealer.

Eric Michael Rogers, 18, was taken into custody at his home in Bedford Manor Apartments, Barksdale Lane, after 10 p.m.

Officer Waymond Boyd said he and Officer Tory Moore went to the apartment after being told drugs were being sold there.

Rogers took the officers to a bedroom where he pulled small bags of marijuana from under a television set, then displayed a backpack with two large bags and more smaller bags of pot, Boyd said.

The backpack also contained a digital scale, silver grinder and $650, Boyd said.

Rogers is charged with possession of a schedule VI drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and is being held on $10,500 bond, Bedford County Jail records indicate.
