Burglars Strike North Cookeville Apartments

First it was a series of business break-ins Monday night. Now, authorities say someone spent much of Wednesday breaking into cars north of Cookeville. It happened at some apartment complexes along Dodson Branch Road. According to the sheriff's department, burglars broke into several cars at one set of apartments, stealing money, CDs, a GPS device and other items. They also may have been responsible for an apartment burglary in the same area in which a rock was tossed through a window to gain access. The thief got away with 42-inch television set, an XBox game system and several hundred dollars in cash. Anyone with information about any of the burglaries is asked to call Crimestoppers at 520-7867.
