More than $1,500 in guns, jewelry stolen from Valdosta home


Valdosta Police continued to investigate a home burglary Friday, in which the thief or thieves made off with over $1,500 dollars in guns and jewelry.

71 year-old Jessie Garnto said she left her home at 203 Simpson Street around 10:30 a.m. Thursday to run some errands, and when she came back around 1:30 she discovered someone had broken into her home through her back door. A Remington Model 742 rifle, a Winchester Model 700 rifle, a Springfield 12 gauge shotgun, a Marlin 30/30 rifle, a CVA Staghorn Edition .50 caliber rifle, and a .38 caliber revolver were all reported stolen.

Eight diamond rings, an Onex ring, and a gold watch were also reported stolen. Garnto said said the burglary has been emotionally challenging for her.

"My husband passed away the 21st of July, and I haven't even got over that and then this happens," said Garnto as she fought back tears. "It's like you just violated everything and my house feels dirty."

As of Friday, Valdosta Police did not have any suspects. Call Valdosta Police if you have any information.
