DENVER, N.C. -- More than a dozen victims lost property during a recent string of car break-ins in Lincoln County.
Police responded to four incidents Thursday morning in Denver. The suspects made away with two Garmin GPS units, credit cards, driver’s licenses, a social security card and two wallets.
One victim told police his dog woke him around 2:45 a.m. He looked outside to see three people around his car. The victim says they appear to be white males, possibly in their late teens. They allegedly fled in a silver, four-door car once the victim noticed them.
Police say the description sounded like that of a suspect who was reportedly seen walking around the Kings Grant neighborhood early Monday. Deputies took reports of 15 break-ins that day.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says all of the cars were unlocked, and this should serve as a reminder to car owners to always lock car doors and remove valuables from vehicles.
Anyone with information on these incidents should call the sheriff’s office. At 704-732-9050.
