Cash and jewelry were stolen from an Alpharetta home Saturday night after suspected burglars forced their way into the house, police said.

The crime occurred around 9:40 p.m. on Saturday, according to a police report, at a home on Bradbury Lane, a cul-de-sac just off Kimball Bridge Road near Ocee Park.

Police said that a rear window screen on the home was cut open and the outside pane was partially shattered. A 35-year-old woman living at the house reported missing $4,000 in cash and a diamond ring valued at $3,000 from her bedroom.

Police described that room as being “ransacked” and noted that someone had “clearly been through” a dresser in the room and the closet. The victim said the cash was in an envelope in a cardboard box in the closet.

According to the police report, officers were called to the home by a male neighbor, who called 911 while he was walking his dog. The witness told police he saw “a subject” near the bushes of the home speaking a “foreign language.” Minutes later, the witness saw that person get in a white vehicle near Ocee Park.

The witness then went around the rear of the home and noticed the screen of the window had been removed, police said. The homeowner arrived shortly after police got there.

There were cameras in the house, but they only stream live video and do not record, the victim told officers.

Police did not give a description of the suspect in their report.

Anyone with information about this crime can contact the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety at 678-297-6300.
