Thomasville, GA - Isaiah Thomas said his life has been turned upside down since Sunday morning.
Thomas went to church Sunday, but when he got home from church he said he noticed that a screen from one of his windows was on the ground. That's when Thomas knew something was wrong and immediately called police.
"The resident discovered that there were several guns that were taken from a gun cabinet in his house," said LT. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department Spokesperson
The guns stolen were:
1- 12 gauge shot breechable shotgun-unknown brand with 36" barrel
1- "A.H." 12 gauge pump action shotgun
1- Remington Model 522 22 SLLR with black scope
1- Smith and Wesson Model 733 32 Caliber 6 shot revolver
1- "H.W.' 38 caliber 6 shot revolver
The suspect did get away, but not without leaving police a crucial piece of evidence. Detectives found traces of blood from where the suspect broke into the gun cabinet and cut his hands. There were blood droplets around the gun cabinet and on Thomas' front porch.
"They are working on this and right at this time they're not going to release any names as far as what they got for suspects," said LT. Hampton.
Thomas did tell us what happen, but he didn't want to talk on camera. His nephew did however and had an important message for folks.
"You'd be surprised to who all is kin to who," said Jermaine Edwards
