SASSER, Ga. (WALB) -The Terrell County Sheriff’s Office needs your help identifying criminals they believe could be linked to a string of entering auto burglaries that date back to last month.

They are likely using four-wheelers to carry out the burglaries, many of them s happening at an RV camping park, and in the Sasser area, according to officers.

Guns and money are some of the items that have been taken, from vehicles and RVs that were “presumed” to be unlocked, according to deputies. They said no windows were broken to get inside.

Now deputies are asking everyone to remember to lock their doors.
