Burglary Cases On The Rise

Burglary cases are on a bit of an uptick in the Cookeville area this week. Police say items were stolen from at least three vehicles on Mount Vernon Road Monday. In one case, the victim says a purse with several credit cards, a social security and a driver's license was taken. In the second case, a GPS unit and a cell phone car charger were stolen. And, in the third instance, a check book, an IPod and a GPS device were taken. In all of the cases, police say the victims may have left their vehicles unlocked. Unlocked doors also made in possible for thieves to steal several items from two cars on Farmington Drive, including wallets, cash, checks and a cell phone. Meanwhile, in a separate case, police say several storage units were broken into at the Northside Mini-Storage on East 15th Street. Among the items taken were a set of China, camping equipment, golf clubs, jewelry and some Army awards and ribbons. Detective Tim Terry is investigating.
