A man reported that soon after he moved into his North Peter Street residence he was away for 10 days and upon returning on Tuesday he found that his home had been burglarized and ransacked, with appliances and other items valued at more than $1,800 stolen, Athens-Clarke County police said.

Thieves who entered the home by prying open a back door stole items that included a stove, microwave oven, a washing machine, clothes dryer, a toaster oven, a blender, a pressure cooker, a smoker and an electronic charger, police said.
