Stolen Mustang found in the dunes

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An APD officer patrolling in the sand dunes area around Mobile Avenue spotted a car that was reported stolen last week.

Albany area law enforcement was on the lookout for a stolen 2010 Mustang convertible, taken from the Hidden Lakes area on the night on July 17. The keys were left in the car, and the thief simply cranked it up and drove away.

Several vehicles were broken into that night, and people attempted unsuccessfully to break into several others.

The Mustang belongs to Elvis and Linda Muldrow, who identified the car about noon Wednesday, and the car was fingerprinted and towed to DCP headquarters.

“Lock them. Don't leave the keys in the vehicle. If you have an alarm set the alarm. Just be aware of your surroundings. If neighbors will look out for one another. If you see or hear anything suspicious, call the police. And we'll come out and check it,” said Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick of the Dougherty Co. Police Dept.


Police say the problem of entering autos at night persists, and everyone is advised to lock their cars all the time.
