Wave of Thefts Reported From Unlocked Cars

Several vehicles that police say had been left unlocked were burglarized this week. One resident says she left her car unlocked when she was at church on Fairground Street Sunday night and returned home to find that a GPS unit and a garage door opener were missing. Meanwhile, a resident of Stevens Street says that she had not locked her car after returning from church and later found that several items had been taken from it, including CDs and jumper cables. A man on Crescent Drive also reported to police that a CD player had been stolen from his unlocked vehicle; and a GPS unit and a radar detector were stolen from a car on Jackson Street. The victim says they were taken out of a locked trunk, but police say there was no sign of forced entry.
