Georgetown police are investigating another home burglary in the Maryville Community.
Georgetown Police Capt. Nelson Brown said the latest break-in occurred at a home on Helena Street between 8:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Friday.
Brown said the intruders stole a 42-inch TV, a video game system, $30 in cash and jewelry.
This is the second home on Helena Street to be burglarized in less than a month and the 13th in Maryville since November.
Brown said most of the burglaries fit the same MO (modus operandi or method of operation).

Brown said the way the suspect or suspects entered the homes, what they did inside, and the items taken were all very similar.
Brown said Friday police continue to follow leads in the cases.
He said there are steps the public can take to help police nab the burglars.
One, is to keep a list of the serial numbers of larger items such as TVs, computer and firearms.
“I would even suggest taking pictures of those items,” Brown said. That, he said, will help investigators know for sure if an item recovered is actually stolen and from whom it was taken.
“Call police if you see anything at all you consider suspicious. That is what we are here for,” Brown said. The number for reporting is 527-6763 or you can call 911.
