Police responded to a report of a residential burglary on Scout Trail Oct. 12 after the 10-year-old resident noticed a vehicle in the driveway.
The girl told police she was watching TV in the family room at about 4 p.m. when she noticed a blue vehicle drive past the front of the home and then turn into the driveway. Police said two men exited the vehicle and rang the doorbell.
The girl became frightened because she did not recognize the men. She didn't answer the door; instead she went to wake her father who was asleep in a bedroom near the rear of the home. The father reported hearing banging noises coming from the rear of the home, and then observed a male subject in the hallway just outside the bedroom.

Police said the man called out to the subject who then turned around and exited the residence. The father immediately called police. Entry was gained by kicking in a rear door, and it appears that only one subject actually entered the residence. Nothing appears to have been taken during the burglary.
Both suspects were white males, according to police. The first subject is described as being thin with mohawk-style hair, approximately 6 feet tall, and wearing a T-shirt and jeans. Police said the second subject is also described as 6 feet tall with a heavy build. He has short dark hair and was wearing a T-shirt and jeans. The vehicle is described as a blue sedan with tinted windows and possibly a loud exhaust.
