NATCHEZ — Two people slept through an alleged burglary at Susie B. West apartments Thursday while a flat screen TV was stolen, according to a Natchez Police Department report.

The complainant said she left her apartment at approximately 6 a.m., leaving her back door unlocked because she neglected to take her keys with her, the report states.

When she returned at 1 p.m., she said, she discovered that the TV in her bedroom was gone, and according to the report, her daughter and grandchild had been sleeping in the apartment during that time.
