Thief takes $250K from bedroom



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A man reported someone broke into his house recently and stole $250,000 in $100 increments from his bedroom closet.

The 75-year-old man said the glass on the backdoor of his home on Prestwick Circle was smashed, and he found the master bedroom was the only area of the house ransacked. The drawers were dumped out and the clothes were scattered.

The cabinets in the bathroom were all open, and the items were also on the floor. His 71-year-old wife went into the master bedroom closet and noticed the money missing.

Scuff marks were found on the ground consistent with someone crawling on the ground to avoid setting off motion detectors in the home, according to detectives. The man said he did not set the alarm before leaving the house.
