Burglary Victim Appeals For Return Of Family Videos

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - A man whose house was burglarized has appealed for the return of family videos lost with the theft of a camcorder.

Paul Jeremiah said Tuesday that the burglars could keep the Sony camcorder but asked that the videos be left somewhere, maybe at a church or post office, to be returned.

Jeremiah, his wife and their children were sleeping in their home in nearby Lake Township when burglars entered through a side door last Wednesday, he said.

The burglars came through the laundry room, where the family dog stays at night. The burglars must have petted the dog, who never barked, Jeremiah said.

There were more than 20 burglaries in the area on the night Jeremiah was robbed, police said.
