Multiple vehicles burglarized in Southwest neighborhood

Decatur police are investigating a series of auto burglaries in a Southwest Decatur neighborhood.

Police received 10 reports of vehicles broken into between Monday night and Tuesday morning in a small area. Most of the vehicles were parked at apartment complexes in the 3100 block of Sumac Road and 200 block of Tammy Street.

“Nine of those 10, the people left their vehicle unlocked,” said Sgt. Steve Campbell, a police spokesman.

Thieves took stereo equipment and personal items from several of the vehicles. A stolen military dress sword was later recovered, according to one report.

Campbell said investigators feel the cases are probably connected.

He advised residents to lock their vehicles and keep an eye out for suspicious activity.

“We really need anyone with any information to give us a call,” Campbell said. “They can do so anonymously through 341-INFO (4636).”
