November 14, 10:13 am. Sgt. Mitch Raffel was dispatched to Marion Dr. in reference to a damaged screen and stolen microwave. Upon arrival, Raffel spoke to complainant Adam Beatty, who works for Benanzer Homes. Adam said he has been fixing up the property on Marion Dr. For Benanzer Homes, and the residence is currently vacant. When Adam came to the residence at about 10:10 am, he noticed the back door was unlocked and slightly ajar and that the microwave was missing with its hanging bar still on the wall but damaged. Adam also noted the back bathroom window screen was damaged; the toilet had been used, used paper towels were left on the bathroom vanity, and a saw horse, which had been in the garage, was leaning on the exterior wall by the back door. Adam stated he believes Terry Goodpaster may be the suspect as Terry used to work for Banazer Homes and had been caught stealing from them. Treaty City Manor has a camera that faces to the west. The video shows a vehicle parking in the Treaty City Manor’s back parking lot next to Marion at 9:12 pm. The driver/suspect is seen walking from the car to the residence on Marion and walking along the fence to the backyard. The camera does not show the back of the house. At 10:07 am, the suspect left the property carrying unknown items, returned to his car, and left the area. Identification cannot be made of the suspect or vehicle; the light fixtures of the vehicle in the video do match a Kia owned by Terry. Further investigation is needed.
