Reward offered to capture burglar(s) in Medina


MEDINA — Twice, his mother’s home has been burglarized in a span of one year.

Xiao Long Wang, 30, wants it to stop.

He’s offering a reward of $10,000 to the person who provides information that leads to an arrest.

Wang said he doesn’t even need to have the items that were taken returned to his family. He just wants to find out the name of the person or persons and “put them behind bars for a long time.”

Her home was also burglarized on Oct. 27, 2017 — almost a year to the date before it happened again. Wang said the most recent break-in of his mother’s home on the 700 block of Westwood Drive happened sometime between 1:30-11:30 p.m. Oct. 26. The family returned home to find several items missing and called police at 11:41 p.m.

Among the items taken were Chanel and Louis Vuitton purses, some valuable watches and jewelry and a bottle of fine wine.

Xiu Zhen Dong, 54, owns Dragon Buffet in Medina.

“My mother is well known in Medina,” Wang said.

Wang, 30, said his parents don’t deserve this kind of treatment.

“I want to put a stop to this completely,” he said. “I want to put all of my resources to putting them behind bars.”

Medina Police Sgt. Brett McNabb said there are no suspects in the case.

“It’s still under investigation,” he said.

McNabb said the police can’t be involved in the reward.

He did say if anyone in the community has information about the case, they should call (330) 725-7777.

Wang said it’s no coincidence his parents’ home was hit twice in one year.

“They know us,” he said. “They do it to mock us. We live in peace.”
