MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A gun safe and $1,450 worth of items were stolen from a Myrtle Beach residence Monday afternoon, according to a Myrtle Beach Police Department incident report.

Police responded to a home on Ocala Street just before 1:30 p.m. in regards to a burglary. The victim stated that he exited the home from the garage at 12:30 p.m. and returned 45 minutes later; he did not make sure the doors to the residence were locked before leaving, the report says.
