Dougherty County Police warn to be on lookout for crooks burglarizing cars

 Dougherty County Police are warning motorists to be on the lookout for crooks breaking into cars parked at their owner's homes.

At least five cars in the Byron Plantation Road area were burglarized Sunday night.  

Joyce Wetherbee found her S-U-V door open Monday morning.

Crooks ransacked it but took nothing.

A gun and a computer were stolen from other cars, all of which were left unlocked.


"For one, lock them," said Dougherty County Police Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick.  "Take their valuables out of their car. In some of these entering autos we had today, the cars were unlocked but there were no valuables inside. So nothing was actually taken. Which is good."


Police urge you to report suspicious people in your neighborhood at night.

If you have any information about these car break ins, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
