W.Va. officer's home burglarized, equipment gone
The Associated Press
BECKWITH, W.Va. — Handcuffs are not something a burglar wants to see, unless they are part of the loot taken from a police officer's house.
Workman said the unidentified officer and his family were not home when the break-in occurred between 5 p.m and 7 p.m. Monday.
He said the gun, valued at $500, is a model that could be purchased anywhere but the $1,800 radio is not an item that a civilian would have.
Police do not know whether the burglar knew a police officer lived in the house, he said.
