University Police investigate string of vehicle break ins

January 22, 2007

Valdosta - College is stressful enough but now students returning to a South Georgia University have a new concern.

Twelve car break ins have been reported to Valdosta State University Police since the students returned to class earlier this month

The break ins have all occurred on the west side of the VSU campus.

University Police and City police are teaming up to find those responsible.  "We're doing extra patrols, we're keeping people out there and we've got some cameras near the areas that we are taking a look at to see what we can see in those areas," says Scott Doner, Directer of the University Police.

Police say the students should be sure to lock their doors, lock all valuables in their trunks, and if possible park near a lighted area or an emergency call box.
