Several hundred dollars worth of electronics, as well as a pistol and cash, were stolen during a break-in at a home on Edwards Street in Union City.
Gary Frank Hutchison of 907 Edwards St. told police Thursday his home had been burglarized sometime during the day, according to a Union City Police Department report.
Hutchison said his stepdaughter came home from school to discover someone had forcibly entered the house by kicking in a back door, which destroyed the door facing and trim. He discovered several items were out of place, while other items were discovered scattered about the house.
Among the items reported missing from the residence were a Ruger P-89 semi-automatic handgun, a pair of Beats head phones, an Xbox 360, as well as 10 games and three controllers, a Wii game system, an iPad mini with OtterBox, a Generation 4 iPod with front and rear cameras, a Generation 1 iPod and an undetermined amount of cash.
The burglary apparently occurred sometime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Thursday, according to the report.
The incident is the second burglary reported in the 900 block of Edwards Street in the past month. Police also investigated a break-in reported April 23 at a home at 901 Edwards St., where firearms and televisions were among the items taken.
