Man caught on video breaking into Lincoln County home

The break-in was caught on security video, and deputies are now looking for help tracking down the man

LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo. — The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man they said broke into a home and tried to steal a TV earlier this month.

The sheriff's department said they were called to a home on Burr Oak Road on April 11 after a woman discovered her TV was missing.

She told police she was asleep in her home when she heard her pets making some noise. When she got out of bed to see what was going on, she realized her TV was missing and called police.

Deputies found a busted out window in the basement of the home and the TV sitting on the basement floor near the window.

Deputies said the burglar could not fit the TV out of the window, so he grabbed the victim's search-and-rescue bag from the basement and fled.

The break-in was caught on security video, and deputies are now looking for help tracking down the burglar.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call 636-528-8546 Ex. 3248.
