Man with disabilities struggles after Chesterfield home burglary

Chesterfield Police have arrested a woman for breaking in to the home of a disabled man and his family.

"Pretty much all of my jewelry was gone," said Christine Sullivan-King. "They kicked in the door and the glass from the door was all over the floor and inside the house."

The new door with double locks and a smaller frame has made Christine's wheelchair-bound spouse a virtual prisoner in his own home.

"That's the part that makes me the angriest," said Christine. "He has enough challenges as it is. He does not need to worry about getting into and out of the house."

The King family has owned the Bellwood Road property for close to 50 years. They say this is the first they have been victimized. 

"I was just thinking," said neighbor Steven Bonner. "I leave my windows open and my doors open. It scares me."

Christine says the family pet, Trip, was home at the time of the incident.

"He was traumatized," said Christine. "I had a 52 pound lap dog after it happened."


Audrey Jean, 38, now faces three felony larceny charges. She is due in court in January.
