Thomasville-- A rash of burglaries in Thomas and Grady counties is an increasing problem that's costing victims money and authorities manpower.
Two neighborhoods in Northern Thomas County look peaceful enough. But lately, sheriff's investigators say they're anything but. "Last three or four weeks we've noticed an increase in daytime burglaries," says Thomas sheriff's investigator, Pascal Autrey.
There have been a rash of about a dozen burglaries around Ochlocknee and Meigs. It's the number of break ins that makes this growing problem so expensive, not what was stolen. "We're missing weed eaters, blowers, lawn mowers, air compressors. Some of the houses they entered, we're missing some Playstation games," says Autrey.
A neighborhood in Grady County, just over the Thomas line, is experiencing a similar series of burglaries. "They've had five or six we know of," says Autrey. Investigators suspect the same people may be to blame in both counties. "They don't take a lot of stuff out. They may try to take one or two items and leave a lot of items that are similar, maybe so the owner doesn't pick up that the items are missing," says Autrey.
Similar homes and similar MO's have led investigators to several people of interest but no concrete suspects. That's where you come in. Investigators want any suspicious people, or cars, reported immediately. "Especially during the daytime, try to get a tag number, but don't put yourself in danger," says Autrey. That could save an unwitting homeowner from being put in danger themselves.
So far, nobody has been home during any of the burglaries. But investigators say they consider this case a top priority because eventually, homeowners' and burglars' paths could cross.
