White County Sheriff’s Office Investigates Break-In Sunday Night

The White County Sheriff’s Office received a call Sunday, around 8:09 PM, from Steven Barker of Shawneetown, reporting a break-in at a mobile home on Valter Drive in Carmi. Barker told Deputy Scott Cantrell that the residence belonged to his mother who passed away. Barker said sometime within the last week someone broke the window on the north side of the living room to gain entry into the mobile home. Inside, he found the contents of the trailer dumped in the floor and stacked in boxes.  Barker told Officers a TV was missing from the bedroom and probably some other items, though it was hard to tell exactly what was missing. A shopping cart that was usually on the front porch was found in the neighbor’s yard. The neighbor said that he had noticed the shopping cart loaded with things in front of the adjacent neighbor’s house but did not realize the belongings may have came from Barker’s mobile home. Deputy Cantrell stopped at the neighbor’s house to attempt to investigate, but no one answered the door.
