Woman surprises two burglars in Joplin home

A neighbor, who had permission to enter a Joplin woman’s home to use her shower Friday while she was gone, surprised two burglars.

Joplin police Lt. Charla Geller said the burglars ran from Kimberly A. Smith’s home on South Murphy Avenue with some of her jewelry and a cellphone. Her neighbor called Smith, and she reported the burglary. One of the burglars was wearing a camouflage coat, Geller said.

The burglary remained under investigation Monday without any arrests having been made.
