APD said the call of the burglary came in shortly after 2 p.m.

No suspects have been determined at this time.

Dorough told WALB that he was not home during the time of the burglary. He said some of his wife’s jewelry was taken.

“There are no simple answers to complex problems. We’re going to address it comprehensively and of course, creating economic opportunity is one component of reducing crime,” said Dorough.

WALB has a reporter on the scene getting more information. This is a developing story and we will update as more information becomes available.
