Suspects Caught In Allman House Burglary

Gregg Allman almost had a few less silver dollars after someone broke into his southeast Georgia home and stole a coin collection, knives and unreleased concert recordings, police said.

The Allman Brothers Band singer and keyboardist, 61, was out of town when burglars broke into his home in Richmond Hill, 20 miles south of Savannah.

Bryan County Sheriff Department detective Sands said the burglars took a case containing Allman's collection of 19th-century silver dollars and two safes filled with gold coins, personal papers, collectible knives and several tapes of unreleased recordings.

Investigators recovered all the belongings except a handgun. Craig Matthew George, 27, and Brittney Ann Sahlberg, 19, both of Richmond Hill, were charged two days after the Dec. 27 burglary. Sands said Allman knew them but would not say how.

George and Sahlberg have been released from jail on bond. Neither had a listed phone number in Richmond Hill. Sands and District Attorney Tom Durden said they did not know if either has an attorney.
