David Pryor's home a burglary target

Posted By on Fri, May 31, 2013 at 9:45 AM

The Little Rock police say former U.S. Sen. David Pryor's home on a side street off the Cantrell Road hill was burglarized Thursday while the Pryors were away between about 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. The report said no sign of forced entry was found, but a sliding glass door on a deck was open and the front door was unlocked when they returned.

The thief or thieves ransacked several rooms, dumping out contents of drawers, and apparently used a bedspread to wrap up some of the items stolen.

Pryor and his wife Barbara reported that two Macbook computers, sterling silver flatware and serving pieces, pocket watches and a substantial amount of jewelry were stolen. Some $30,000 worth of items, including $21,000 worth of sterling items, were taken, not counting jewelry, which hadn't been inventoried.

Pryor said he'd seen a suspicious brown truck in rough condition on the street in recent days.
