Four persons are tonight in big trouble after they were allegedly caught red handed with items stolen from the house of Shelly Edwards. According to reports, just after two on Saturday morning, Edward’s home in Mahogany Heights was burglarized and stolen were several items including a microwave, a sound system and several other items totaling approximately three thousand dollars. Neighbors heard the commotion and called the cops. Quick response from the police led to the apprehension of four persons including a minor and a female who are all residents of the community. Edwards says that the incident has her at a loss for words because the alleged culprits are well known to her.

“I got a call from my neighbors stating that they burglarized my home. I went away for the weekend to spend my birthday with my mom. When I got that call, I hurry come. I talked to the police and they said that yes my home was burglarized. They said that they retrieved the stuff and they got the culprits in custody. When I got here, indeed my home was burglarized. I can tell you that I have very good neighbors because they were the ones who called the police and alerted them about what happened. They gained entry through the back door. They used a crowbar to pry open the backdoor because the police have the crowbar; they found the crow bar in the back of my yard. Because of the quick response from police, they got the culprits.”
