GASTONIA, N.C. -- Police are investigating an unusual crime that occurred in a Gastonia house.

The homeowner tells NBC Charlotte she came home Thursday to find two bedrooms ransacked, and a big hole in the floor leading to her crawl space.

Investigators say the burglar tunneled into the house on Green Circle Drive through by using the crawl space and breaking in through the floor.

The suspect made away with thousands of dollars in property including a laptop, jewelry and designer handbags.
