Series Of Vehicle Burglaries Under Investigation

Cookeville police detectives are looking into a series of vehicle burglaries reported to the department this week, including an incident in which thieves broke into several vehicles at Bob's Body Shop on West Broad Street, stole car stereos and damaged several vehicles, breaking the passenger side window out of one of them.  Meanwhile, a resident of Rebecca Place told police that someone stole an IPOD touch, a calculator, a back pack and some college textbooks out of his truck this week.  The loss was placed at more than $700. In a separate incident, a laptop computer was stolen out of a vehicle parked at a business on South Willow Avenue, after the thief broke out a window.  And the owner of a truck service reported to police that three copper radiators had been stolen out of some non-running vehicles on his property -- possible to be sold for scrap.
