AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials in east Georgia are investigating a break-in at the boyhood home of former President Woodrow Wilson.

Authorities say the Sunday afternoon burglary at the Augusta home caused $750 in damage.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that an alarm was tripped at the home at 419 Seventh St. around 4 p.m. A sheriff's report said deputies found a rear window that had been pried open and a piece of window casing on the ground.

Richmond County Deputy Tracy Ponder found the curtain thrown aside and items on an inside table scattered.

Erick Montgomery, the executive director of Historic Augusta, told officers that no items were missing. No witnesses had come forward.
