City, county officials investigating more vehicle break-ins

Investigators are looking into another rash of vehicle break-ins that occurred throughout Greenwood County between March 22 and April 1.

According to investigators, seven vehicle break-ins were reported in the city on Monday and four were reported in the county. Four other vehicle break-ins were reported in the county last Monday. Investigators say that the vehicles were all unlocked.

Items stolen from the vehicles include a DPMS Oracle AR-15 assault rifle with a red dot sight, two boxes of .45 caliber ammunition, a Glock Model 31 with laser grip sights, $300 in cash, prescription pain medication, several wallets and an assortment of loose change.

The thefts took place on Sunset Drive, Sagewood Road and Dogwood Drive; Greenway Drive and Effie Drive in North Fall Acres; and in the Rock Knoll area off of Laurel Avenue and Haltiwanger Road.

There was another, much larger string of vehicle break-ins that occurred in September and August last year. The vast majority of those break-ins involved vehicles that were left unlocked overnight, one of which was a police vehicle containing a number of guns and ammunition. Investigators made a number of arrests in connection with those burglaries, including one that involved the SWAT team at Georgetown Apartments.

Officials are again encouraging residents to lock their vehicles at night. Anyone with information regarding the break-ins should call the Sheriff’s Office, the Greenwood Police Department or dial 911.

That's odd. The article doesn't seem to mention the break in that was on Stanley Avenue before March 22 in which there is video evidence, proper identification of the suspect and his vehicle, but yet not enough evidence to make an arrest. Mostly because a relative is prominent in the city and no one wants to ruffle any feathers. I'm sure this is entirely unrelated.

This is absolutely ridiculous! Fo rthe life of me I can not understand what these people are thinking!! To steal someone else's belongings you have to have wayyy too much time on your hands! Why don't you try getting a job or volunteering somewhere to take up some of that time and be able to get the things you want. Ugh! Absolutely disgraceful!
