WALNUT – The Tippah County Sheriff’s Department is investigating two recent residential burglaries in the northern part of the county, property owners said this week. No charges have been filed in either case. A Walnut man said this week his residence was recently burglarized for the second time in five years. Thus far, there have been no recoveries from either burglary, according to Donald Dowdy. His County Road 102 house was burglarized Tuesday, Dec. 7. Seven guns and a chain saw were taken. No one was home at the time. “They broke in sometimes between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. I think that whoever broke in knew us, knew where everything was and when to hit,” Dowdy said. He said Chief Deputy Roy Shappley and Deputy Pete Crum, North Half Constable Terry Mathis, and Walnut Police Officer Jimmy Wilbanks have been in contact with him about the case. In the burglary five years ago, three guns and a computer were taken. The other recent burglary happened at the David Nabors residence in Walnut. Nabors said this week his house was burglarized late last month. “It was the Monday after Thanksgiving. They just took odds and ends, pocket change, my son’s DS, and ransacked a room,” Nabors said.
