"The bedroom was a mess with clothes strewn all over the place and we noticed a lot of stuff missing, a lot of jewelry stuff," one homeowner told WBTV. He and his wife came home from vacation to find a back door smashed and many items missing. "We had a jewelry cabinet, a large one, stood four feet high, they just took it, carried it out with them. I had a couple of briefcases with tax records, my military discharge. They took a video camera...lot of antique coins, sentimental stuff, grandmothers ring, wedding ring, has a lot of sentimental value."
