Guitar Taken in Burglary

A Clinton man returned home last night to discover his front door was open, and that someone had been inside. The Sheriff’s office was dispatched at 11:40 lat night to the house in the 1200 address range of Charlotte’s road. Deputy Steve Paterson reported it appears someone attempted to break in through a back door, broke the knob off, then went to the front door and broke in through it. The only thing noted as missing was a guitar the man’s daughter had recently purchased for him. The man still had the box the guitar came in, along with make, model and serial number that can be entered into the N.C.I.C.
