Police are looking for a burglar 40-50 years old who bound a woman and her 4-year-old son in their home and escaped with cash and jewelry.
Sherry Bullard, 42, arrived at her Sea Island Drive home about 6:20 p.m. Tuesday and was surprised in the kitchen by a burglar in a white stocking mask, police Officer Greg Armstrong said.
The robber pressed a revolver that he had found in the home into her side, police said, then bound Bullard and her son. He escaped with an estimated $96,000 worth of jewelry and cash, police said.
Bullard loosened her bindings enough to call 911. Police had to cut the woman and her son free. Both were unhurt.
