80-year-old man victim of burglary, report says

JONESBORO, Ark. – While the silver years are supposed to be for relaxation and retirement, an elderly man became a victim of theft when he returned home Thursday in Jonesboro.

Once inside, the thief or thieves stole a 32-inch Hisense flatscreen television and a Wonder Bread toy collectible truck.

The estimated theft was at about $400 in property, with each item being relatively close in value.
