Candy Lane Is Sweet Spot for Burglar – Lilburn Patch

It seems that a group of burglars may have hit up at least two homes on the same day on the same street -- Candy Lane in Lilburn.

On Oct. 3, one of the victims contacted police after arriving home about 4:15 p.m.

When police arrived, they found disheveled bedrooms with open drawers, mattresses pushed off beds and covers removed. But, several pieces of electronics were still there, including a laptop on the floor, the report stated.

It was later discovered that a Bulova watch and a diamond necklace had been taken, according to the report. 

Nearby, in the same block, a resident flagged down police as they were leaving the first home. His home also had been apparently burglarized. A flat screen television, $220 in cash, a Samsung tablet, a cell phone and a mini megaphone were determined to be missing.
