A burglar recently entered a Braselton home, taking a Coca-Cola and tacos.

Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputies were called for the burglary report on New Liberty Church Rd.

The complainant said that when she arrived home, she noticed someone had been inside her residence. She saw a partially-consumed bottle of Coca-Cola and a plastic food container, which contained tacos she'd previously cooked, were left on a bench.

The complainant said the suspect may be a homeless woman who frequents the area. She said she didn't want to get the suspect in trouble, but wanted officers to give her a "stern warning." The complainant later said she did want the suspect arrested.
