A Wakeman man reported about $850 in cash, several weapons, about 1,700 rounds of ammunition, some jewelry and Iraq memorabilia were missing from his residence after a burglary this week.

The Monroe Road incident was reported to the Huron County Sheriff's Office just after 7 p.m. Wednesday. The complainant accused someone of entering his home, removing some items and also letting his cows out.

The 41-year-old man came home after being gone for four or five hours and discovered the cows were out of his barn and someone had forced their way into his residence, Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said.

Agents with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification arrived at 9:30 p.m. to process the scene.

"They spent an extensive amount of time out there," Patrick said.

Reported missing from the man's home were: Four firearms (Ruger GP 100-357, .45 Kimber custom tactical II, Ruger single-six .22 revolver and a Taurus Judge 410 revolver), about $50 in cash and coins from three piggy banks, a fire safe containing about $800 in cash, $500 in Iraq money, adult and children's jewelry worth about $400, numerous Iraq medals, 12 compound bow arrows, an AK-47 bayonet, a 14-count magazine for an AK-47, about 1,700 rounds of ammunition and a .177 air gun.

"We'll be following up on some leads we have," Patrick said.

The burglary remains under investigation.
