Thefts are up across Colquitt County this summer. Deputies were busy over the weekend, investigating several thefts from homes and vehicles.

Throughout the summer, authorities say several thousand dollars worth of property has been reported stolen in the county. Lieutenant Shawn Bostick with the Sheriff's Department says even though the thefts have been on the rise, they're common this time of year.

"Some larger items taken recently, as large as tractors and agricultural equipment," said Bostick. "We've experienced an increase in entering autos, with items stolen out of cars."

Lieutenant Bostick wants to remind residents to keep valued items out of sight and locked up. If you have any information on thefts, you're asked to call the Colquitt County Sheriff's office.
