Seeking more fingerprint clues, the Chattooga County Sheriff has enlisted the GBI’s help in solving a rash of burglaries.

One of the biggest burglaries was reported 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the home of 52-year-old Stanley Sprayberry, of 8 Maddox Lake Road. Someone broke a window in the rear of the house and burglarized his residence.

“It appeared that a table top from the back deck had been used to break the window. The table top was found lying in the living room near the broken window,” Deputy Jason Burrage reported.

It will cost about $600 to repair the back window. But that is not all the damage.

“They ransacked the whole home and stole about $30,000 worth of stuff,” Sheriff John Everett said.

Some of the stolen items include: A H&K .40-caliber gun with serial number 26-086259, an AR15 A3 Colt with a red dot sight, a Smith and Wesson M&P 9-mm gun with serial number MPL0311, a 30.06 Remington with scope, a laptop computer, a diamond ring valued at $10,000, a $2,000 gold heart shaped pendant, a wallet, a white lock box containing birth certificates, a black gun safe, a leather magazine holder and other items.
