NORTH FORK — Do you recognize this man? That’s the question being asked by North Fork resident Bob McKee after his home was broken into on Wednesday. Fortunately, his surveillance cameras captured the man’s image.
“Amazingly I have found nothing missing except some outdated Vicodin,” says Bob. “It appeared the culprit was aware of my surveillance camera system or he wouldn’t have hidden his face walking up and down the driveway and also inside the house.”
Bob says the sheriff’s deputy investigating the case took fingerprints, and hopefully they will reveal a candidate.
This is not the first time Bob’s house on Road 222 has been the target of a break-in. In 2013, thieves broke into his house and stole a digital camera, frozen meat from the freezer, some booze and a pillow case, ostensibly to haul away the loot.
They then loaded it all into his pickup and crashed through the gate on his driveway as they made their getaway.
“I do feel violated again, even without much of anything being stolen,” says Bob.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Madera County Sheriff’s office at 559-675-7770, and refer to case number 18-511.
