By Joe Beck -- jbeck@nvdaily.com

The Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office is investigating two daytime burglaries since Monday in which firearms valued at around $3,000 were reported missing from residences in Mount Jackson.

Lt. Darcy Dellinger said the first burglary was reported on Monday in the 2000 block of Buck Hill Road in Mount Jackson.

Investigators found the home had been broken into, he said. The missing firearms include: a Winchester .270 rifle with a scope; a .22-caliber Marlin pronghorn rifle with a scope; a Marlin .30-30 rifle, a Colt storm trooper .357-caliber revolver; and a Crossman BB gun. Dellinger estimated the total value of the guns at $1,900.

The burglary happened between 9:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, Dellinger said.

Dellinger said deputies answered another burglary report at about 3:21 p.m. Thursday on the 1800 block of Pleasant View Road in Mount Jackson. He said they found the home had been forcibly entered and the following firearms taken: two 12-gauge pump shotguns; a Marlin .30-30 rifle with a scope; a 20-gauge bolt action shotgun; a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle; an Iver Johnson single shot 12-gauge shotgun; and a Remington semi-automatic .22-caliber rifle with a scope.

Dellinger said the guns have a total estimated value of $1,100.

Investigators also listed a 42-inch Sylvania flat screen TV valued at $500 among the missing items.

Investigators believe the Thursday burglary occurred between 10:40 a.m. and 3:15 p.m., Dellinger said. He said anyone with information on the crimes should contact the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office at 459-6100.
