AP Wire Service

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) – The home of a woman missing since Christmas Eve was burglarized while her husband organized search efforts in Southern California, police said.

Scott Peterson reported the break-in Sunday night. His wife, Laci, disappeared more than three weeks ago.

“Detectives don’t believe the burglary is connected to the Peterson case,” said Detective Doug Ridenour, spokesman for the Modesto Police Department.

Police refused to say what was taken from the home.

Peterson put a padlock on his front gate early Monday.
