A Milton man went to get his newspaper Saturday morning and surprised two burglars in his office over his garage.

When he went outside just before 6 a.m., the man noticed a couple of duffle bags on the curb, police said. He carried them and the newspaper into the garage and heard noises upstairs. As he investigated, two men, one with a pistol, ordered him to lie on the floor.

They fled with a laptop, a shotgun and several hundred dollars in cash. Police believe accomplices may have then driven up in a car for their escape. Anyone with information on the incident should call Milton Detective Kevin Barry at 770-360-8858.

Not one resident in Milton is immune to or totally safe from crime. The bad guys want your money and your valuables and will take your life to steal from you. All you can do is keep your doors locked and be aware of your surroundings. The rest is up to fate and hoping the good guys come in time to save you.

At least you will have arms to bear if the bad guys bear theirs.

Let Milton be known as the place where thieves get shot and the crime will remain low.
