NATCHEZ — The Natchez Police Department is investigating an incident in which a woman awoke to find a burglar in her house last week.
Natchez Police Chief Danny White said the NPD received a call that at approximately 11:45 p.m. Thursday, a woman in the 130 block of Auburn Avenue awoke after hearing a strange noise in her house.
The noise was an unknown person inside the house, White said.
After running to get her children, the victim locked herself in a room and used her Kindle tablet device to send a friend a message on Facebook to call the police, White said.
When the police arrived, the suspect was gone, and no evidence of forced entry could be found, White said.
The chief said some small items were taken.
The matter is under investigation.
