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.

Someone broke into a Beckley police officer's house in Beckwith and stole the unidentified officer's handcuffs, 40-caliber Glock service pistol, police radio and duty belt. The burglar also took $2,175 worth of other items, including a PlayStation 2 game console, video games, a portable DVD player, a cell phone and cash, said State Police Cpl. R. C. Workman.

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.
