Heads up in the Barfield area! A break-in occurred at a residence on Barfield Fire Department Rd in Lineville on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 sometime between the hours of 8:00 am-3:00 pm. Several items were taken and the house was ransacked.
The burglar(s) gained entry to the house by breaking a window pane. There are no suspects yet, although resident owners confirm there is evidence that may hopefully provide identity.
So, if you live in that area or traveling through and see any suspicious activity, please be sure to do your best to get to an accurate description and most of all, a tag number. Please call Clay County Sheriff’s Office with any information, 256-354-2176.
