Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
Thomasville- A Thomasville man is accused of stealing everything from lawn equipment to jewelry. Now, Thomasville Police are asking for the community's help in catching someone they call a menace to society.
Sizzling temperatures have a lot of people in Thomasville leaving their car windows down and themselves open to crime.
"Windows down, keys in it, unlocked, not secure," said Micah Beasley, of his truck.
Police say a Thomasville man is taking advantage of the opportunity all over town. Police have 10 warrants for Robert Turner Junior, also know as "Little Bob."
"He's making forced entry into homes or a business and stealing different items, and entering auto's which is when he gets into a vehicle that's not his and steals items," said Lt. Rachelle Denmark, Thomasville Police.
This is what Thomasville Police are asking you not to do, car doors, unlocked, windows, rolled down, keys left in the car, that's what makes these types of thefts a crime of opportunity.
"If you have an alarm system definitely engage it. Make sure your security lights are bright and activated around your home and if you're parking your car, park under a security light, lock your doors," said Denmark.
Police are asking for the community's help, by taking away the opportunity. A lesson Micah Beasley learned.
"Lock it, take the keys, roll the windows up, make sure it's secure, the way it should be," said Beasley.
Beasley doesn't want to fall victim like so many others have and hopes someone will turn in Turner.
There is a reward available for information that may lead to Turners arrest. Tips can be made anonymously to Thomasville's CrimeStoppers at (229)227-3305.
