COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) -- Police say someone with a chainsaw
tried to carve their way into a home south of Atlanta, but the hole was too small for a person to get inside.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a south Fulton County homeowner told authorities that a gaping hold was found Monday in the back of the house.
A police report said authorities believe the burglary would have been successful if the suspect or suspects had cut a larger hole in the house.
Fulton County investigators said they think a homeowner or a neighbor might have scared away whoever cut the hole.
Authorities said the home, on Boxelder Drive near College Park, has bars on the windows and doors, surveillance cameras and an alarm system.
