Burglaries were reported at two Carter County recreation spots over the weekend.
A Bristol couple returned to their vehicle after an afternoon at the Blue Hole on Saturday to find it had been burglarized.
The couple, Harold Jackson Jr., of Bristol, Va., and Elizabeth Meade of Bristol, Tenn., told the Carter County Sheriff’s Department Jackson’s Saturn Vue had been broken into while they were at the mountain recreation spot.
In his report, CCSD Lt. Derrick Hamm said the couple arrived at 5:30 p.m. Saturday and returned to their vehicle at around 8:09 p.m. to find the passenger-side window had been broken.
A tan Aigner pocketbook, containing Meade’s drivers license, checkbook, credit card and debit card, along with other personal items, was missing from the car.
Another theft was reported from Little Stoney Campground on Tuesday morning. A CCSD deputy spoke with Phillip White, who said he had been camping at the campground on Saturday. He left the campground on Sunday to go to church and did not return until 1 a.m. Tuesday.
When he returned, he found his two tents, two fishing poles, a lantern and several other items had been taken from the campsite.
