THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Late Thursday night, Thomasville Police officers recovered the last of three vehicles which had been taken earlier in the week. Police say three Chevy trucks, ranging in years from 1990 to 2007, were stolen from three separate neighborhoods.
Each vehicle was abandoned by the suspect or suspects and recovered by TPD patrol units. TPD will continue looking for items taken from these vehicles. "And if anyone runs across any items such as wallets, purses, bank cards, to give the police department a call," said TPD Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton.
Hampton says sometimes people can be too trusting of others. "You know we can get too lax sometimes by leaving our vehicles and our homes unsecured, by leaving valuables out in plain view where people can see them, and also by leaving our keys in the vehicle."
Hampton says if you can help it, you should never leave valuable items in your car, but if you really have no other choice you should always keep it out of sight. Meaning well under the seat or in the glove compartment. He says you are looking for trouble if you leave your keys in your car. "Sometimes that's just inviting temptation. Inviting criminals that's it's ok, that's my vehicle, take it."
TPD has a message for the public. "When they park their vehicles at night or when they're at work, wherever they may park their vehicles is that they secure the vehicles, make sure the keys are out of them."
Investigators say they are not sure if the thefts are connected. They will continue checking the cars for fingerprints and any other useful evidence. If you have information on the thefts, you're encouraged to call Thomasville Crime Stoppers at 227-3305.
