Who is breaking into cars in Americus

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Americus police are asking for the public's help and sending out a crime warning.

Crooks broke into five vehicles Friday night and early Saturday in five different spots around town. Some of the vehicles were unlocked while others were locked.

Items taken include a gun, cash, a computer, a GPS unit, and a purse.

"Don't leave valuables in plain view within the vehicle, that would help us tremendously because once the vehicle is entered and the perpetrator is gone its sometimes difficult to locate those individuals or make an arrest," said Police Major Herman Lamar.

With kids getting out of school, police expect car break-ins to increase. They say you always need to lock your doors, and they urge you not to leave items, especially guns, in your car.
