Fairfield County Sheriff’s detectives continue to investigate a burglary in Bloom Township.

Sheriff Dave Phalen says a man entered a home on Winchester Road while the homeowner was in the basement. The intruder proceeded to gather a few guns and a flat screen TV and placed them near the front door. Phalen says at this time, the homeowner heard noises from upstairs and confronted the man. He says the two got into a physical dispute before the intruder left in his car.

The homeowner did sustain minor shoulder injuries from the fight.

The suspect is described as a white male, clean shaven, about 5′ 10", and close to 250 pounds. He was last seen driving a small, white car.
