Car break-in, property thefts reported logo

On Oct. 1, Sgt. Brian Boyett of Bainbridge Public Safety responded to the 1500 block of East College Street in reference to an entering auto. A resident and her friend went outside on their porch during the night and one of the women noticed glass lying beside the driver’s side door of the resident’s vehicle, and a window had been busted.

Just after noticing the glass, the resident’s friend stated she looked towards her own vehicle, parked two spots away, and saw what she believed to be a white male wearing either a black cap or hoodie. They went inside to call 911. Later, they discovered the second vehicle also had a broken window. A wallet containing money, a driver’s license and financial cards was taken from the resident’s vehicle.

Bainbridge Public Safety officers attempted to collect fingerprints from the scene. Anyone with more information about car break-ins is asked to call Bainbridge Public Safety investigators at 248-2038 or the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office at 248-3044.
