The home of musician and Richmond Hill resident Gregg Allman was recently burglarized, according the Bryan County Sheriff’s Department.

Arrested Dec. 30 were Craig George, 26, and Brittany Sahlberg, 18, according to the incident report. They were released hours later on $7,500 bond.

Most of the property was recovered, according to BCSD Detective Mickey Sands. He said the Dec. 27 burglary was reported to the sheriff’s department by the property’s caretaker, who arrived at the house around 10 p.m. that evening.

There was no sign of forced entry. The suspects are acquainted with Allman, according to Sands, and were "suspected from the beginning."

Scuff marks were reportedly found on the patio floor near the back bedroom, where fingerprints were lifted from the door frame.

Allman was not home at the time of the alleged crime. He on the road with a "Greg Allman and Friends" tour, which concludes this week.

The following items were among those reported missing: two safes, a coin collection, two knives valued at $10,000, a tool set, jewelry, a gps system, a revolver, Allman Brothers Band T-shirts, personal papers and music cds and tapes. The gun has not been recovered.

Sands said Allman was upset over the missing music, which was "compressed and ready to be released" material for a planned live album and included material recorded in England and Poland.

Sands also said Allman was happy the items were recovered within days.
