Holiday Burglary in Somerset County

Posted:

PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- A Princess Anne apartment was broken into and several electronics were stolen a day after Christmas. Burglars broke into the home Thursday night and took two TVs, a Play Station and a tablet. 

Cassey King came home with her two young children around 6:45 p.m. Thursday to discover two TVs, a Play Station and a tablet computer had been stolen. Her bedroom was also ransacked. King and her children had only been out for three hours. King, who is a single mother, said she is now concerned for her kids' safety.

"My daughter said earlier... she is worried that the bad people are going to come back and take her toys now," she said.  "She's 3 and I had to explain to her that bad people do bad things, it's kind of hard to explain to a 3-year-old."

Police told King that the intruder could be someone she knows. King has a registered gun in visible sight in her apartment. The fact that it was left untouched is evidence that the burglar could have been aware it is registered.

Since the burglar came in and out without anyone seeing them, it is also possible they knew when King and her children would be gone.

King's daughter's grandmother, Sherry Denise Leatherbry, rushed over after getting the call that her grandchild's home was broken into. "It's kind of scary," she explained.  "All I can do is check on them and pray that God keeps them safe."

The kids will still be able to watch their favorite TV shows and movies, however. King said she hides her laptop under the couch, so if they robbers know her, they obviously don't know her well enough to take it.
