Barr said the majority of burglaries are not committed when a house is occupied.

“It’s not often that you have an occupied residence burglarized,” Barr said. “That’s a very dangerous situation.”

There were no injuries as a result of the crime.

The suspect or suspects in the case would face a charge of second-degree burglary and could also face charges of unlawful breaking and entering of a motor vehicle.

Second-degree burglary is a Class B Felony punishable by up to 20 years of prison and breaking and entering a motor vehicle is a Class C Felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

The Troy Police Department asks anyone with any information about this crime to contact the Troy Police Department at 334-566-0500 or call the secret witness line at 334-566-5555.

“This is a very active and ongoing investigation,” Barr said.

More information will be released as the case develops.
