      Dougherty County Police are soliciting the public's help in identifying a female who entered a home without the owners permission.

      Around 1:30 PM on May 23rd, a white female is seen in surveillance video walking up to the residence located in the 200 block of Byron Ridge Lane. She knocked on the door and when she found that no one was home, she drove around to the garage and went inside.

      The owner of the home was on vacation at the time. He says items in the garage were tampered with but Nothing was missing.
