GPD investigating second series of vehicle break-ins

The Greenwood Police Department is investigating another series of vehicle break-ins which they do not believe are connected to the rash of break-ins that occurred over the holidays.

According to GPD reports, there were a total of 12 vehicle break-ins reported to law enforcement on Monday. All of the reported thefts occurred in the Laurel Ridge and Rock Knoll areas. Investigators noted that all but one of the thefts occurred in vehicles where the doors were left unlocked.

“These suspects appear to be targeting vehicles with unlocked doors,” said Lt. Jeff Crisp. “It’s important for people to lock their car doors at night or any time they are away from their vehicle. Thieves are going to hit the easiest target they can find. If your doors are locked they are more likely to move on to the next car.”

This is the second rash of vehicle break-ins in the past month. GPD and Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office have arrested seven people in connection with the first string of break-ins, one of whom was involved in a string of break-ins in 2012. In the incidents from Dec ember and those from 2012, the suspects were targeting vehicles with unlocked doors.

According to the reports, very little was taken from the vehicles. Only three of the 12 victims reported items missing. The items reported missing are a hunting knife, two bottles of cologne, $35 in cash and an iPod touch.

According to the reports, a witness reported seeing two males dressed in black carrying black back packs walking down the middle of Laurel Ridge Way at about 2:30 a.m. Monday morning. The witness notified police, who canvassed the area but were unable to locate the two suspicious men.

The investigation into the incidents is ongoing.
