Burglars take more $10,000 in property

Posted: Updated:

More than $10,000 worth of property was stolen from a woman's home in Berrien County.

Investigators searched a home Monday and found some of the woman's items.

They've made three arrests so far but they're looking to make more.

Berrien County investigators load up a stolen tv that was found inside this mobile home at 611 North Old Coffee Road. They searched that home around 12:30 Monday.

"I think they should go to jail and be punished for what they've done," said Michael Carter of Berrien County.

They also found found a chair and blanket they believe was stolen from a Shiloh Road home last month. Three have been arrested in this case so far. Charles Purvis and Jonathan Guthrie are charged with burglary and theft by taking. Amber Purvis is charged with theft by receiving.

Investigators tell us the individual they were looking for wasn't home during the time of the search and they're trying to track him down.

Take a good look at the Purvis siblings and Jonathan Guthrie. Police say if you bought any stolen goods from these three, they want you to call them.

"We'll send units out to check it," said Berrien Co. investigator Mike Register. "If it is stolen as long as you contact us they'll be no charges filed. We can recover the items and we'll return to the rightful owner."

Michael Carter says he lives on the streets after his house was destroyed by fire. He says he was a burglary victim himself before and it's a bad feeling.

"It felt bad you come back from somewhere and you see your house broken into a lot of stuff had gone from there," said Carter.

So if you think you bought jewelry or electronics from any of these three suspects call Berrien County investigators.

Enedina Paredes' Shiloh Road home was also broken into last summer.

Investigators hope information from the latest break-in will help them solve that case.
