December 21, 2005

Tifton- Authorities in Tifton are also asking for your help in ending a string of burglaries. There have been 35 burglaries in the city of Tifton since November 29th and about 20 more in the county.

Investigators believe at least three people are responsible. They say the burglars enter through broken windows and unlocked doors. Most of the missing items are small, easily pawned items and handguns.

Police urge residents to look out for suspicious activity in their neighborhoods and to come home for lunch, because the burglaries are taking place during daylight hours.

Investigators are on the lookout for two vehicles that may have been used in the crimes - a 1994 Chevy work van with a drive-out tag, and a red and silver Chevy extended cab pickup truck.
