Two homes on the same Hardeeville street were burglarized last week, according to police reports.

In both incidents, residents returned from work shortly before 4 p.m. to find their homes broken into and property stolen.

On Dec. 12, a resident of the 400 block of Main Street reported his front window was shattered and 39-inch plasma TV and HP laptop computer -- items worth a total of $1,020 -- stolen, according to a Hardeeville Police Department report. The 39-year-old man also found an unfamiliar gray shirt.

There are no suspects in the burglary, the report said.

On Dec. 13, a resident of the 700 block of Main Street told officers his front door had been kicked in. An Xbox 360 game console, Samsung Galaxy tablet and a bag filled with Christmas items worth a total of $1,100 were missing, a report said.

A witness to the second burglary told police a tall, black man wearing dark clothing entered the property after walking east on Main Street. The witness "found it odd" but did not call police, the report said.

It was not clear Wednesday whether the burglaries were related. Police Chief Richard Nagy referred questions to Lt. Arnold Middleton, who could not be reached Wednesday.
