Alert – Decatur police investigating reports of vehicle break-ins
Decatur Police say that seven vehicles were entered last night on Garland Avenue, McClean Street and Brower Street.
Sgt. Jennifer Ross said police received the report at 7 am, Feb. 10.
“A resident on a morning walk located a wallet in the roadway and observed several car doors ajar and called police,” Ross said. “Officers canvassed the neighborhood and located seven vehicles that appeared to have been entered. All but one of the vehicles were parked in driveways. All of the vehicles were unsecured. A GPS unit and the recovered wallet were the only things stolen.”
Ross said it “is not uncommon” for multiple car break-ins to occur during bad weather. Police advise residents to lock their vehicles and call police if you see or hear anything suspicious.
