Police are investigating the burglary of Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley’s Tuscaloosa home, which authorities said was broken into while he was in the governor’s mansion in Montgomery.
Tuscaloosa police said the governor’s home was burglarized over the weekend, but did not make the crime public until Wednesday.
There have been no arrests in the burglary, police told the Associated Press. A spokesman for Bentley declined to comment on the crime.
Tuscaloosa officers descended on the home in the Ridgeland subdivision around 11:53 p.m. Sunday after the burglar tripped an alarm, WSFA reported. Officers observed that the burglar gained entry to the governor’s home through a window.
Only a television was taken from the home, the news station reported.
Bentley’s home has an assessed value of $532,000, the AP reported, citing property records.
The Republican governor and his wife, Dianne Bentley, have lived in the mansion since he was elected in 2010, with 58 percent of the vote.
Bentley, a 69-year-old retired dermatologist, defeated Democrat Ron Sparks, the state commissioner of agriculture, in the 2010 election.
It’s unclear whether the burglar knew Bentley owned the home targeted in the crime.
