ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A McDonough man is behind bars in Clayton County for burglarizing the home of a 90-year-old woman.

Jonesboro investigators believe Scott Vincent burglarized the woman's home multiple times.

The victim, Claudia Turner, told CBS Atlanta News the thief stole thousands of dollars in family heirlooms.

The theft left Turner feeling violated.

"How would you feel if someone had broke into your home 15 times and went through every drawer in your house," Turner said.

In this case, Jonesboro detectives believe they've recovered about 90 percent Turner's belongings.

The recovery was made after police discovered a storage unit in Vincent's name. The unit contained items police believe are from multiple victims.

Turner plans to press charges.

"I hope he goes to jail for a long time," Turner said. "He needs to learn not to break into people's homes and steal everything."
