Articles aren't safe in Valdosta cars

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police warn you to keep your car doors locked after an alarming number of auto break-ins over the weekend.

19 thefts were reported from vehicles. Most were scattered around the city, but five were reported on Dellwood and Lakeview Drives, and officials believe they are connected.

Items ranging from wallets and purses to tablets and cell phones were stolen.

"Typically a nice neighborhood, unfortunately someone apparently went though the neighborhood checking car doors, of the five reported I found none of the cars were locked," said VPD Lt. Aaron Kirk.

No arrests any been made so far, and Valdosta Police are monitoring pawn shops to see if any of the items turn up.
