Home invasion burglaries in northeast Jackson

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The window was locked, yet thieves managed to open it early Thursday morning. Then the northeast Jackson couple, who didn't want to be identified, heard a noise.

"Our dog barked, which she never does at night. My wife was like just go check the front of the house. I walked up and went to the living room in the front of the house and there was somebody crouched down on their knees," said the husband.  

The burglar ran, setting off the alarm before he could return with his gun. Some of their valuables are gone and so is their sense of security.

"I've always loved this neighborhood. It's a wonderful neighborhood full of honest and hard working people. I never would've thought that this would happen to us here. This is one of the safest neighborhoods in Jackson but it makes you question. It makes you feel vulnerable. We don't feel safe in this house," said the wife.

Neighborhood associations from Old Canton Hill Drive to the Rollingwood neighborhood, just off Old Canton Road, have sent out alerts about several burglaries. Some of them occurred when the residents were home.

This is near Canton Club Circle where 14 people were held at gun point during a home invasion back May.

When asked what the couple believes the answer is to solving and preventing the home invasion burglaries, the husband answered "There's no answer. It can't be fixed."

The couple says they are discouraged, despite taking security measures, but vow not to let someone invade their home again.
