 April 11, 2014

 Lincolnton, NC – Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies and detectives are investigating a rash of vehicle break-ins along Highway 150 East and Arden Oaks subdivision.

 Residents began reporting the break-in today(Friday) which occurred overnight on Arden Drive, Huckleberry Drive, Oaklin Lane, Fran Avenue, Caprice Drive and the 2500 to 3100 block of Highway 150 East.

 Items were stolen from unlocked vehicles and included electronic, cash and cred

The break-ins were discovered this morning when residents began leaving for work and school.

Criminal Investigations Division Lt. Tim Johnson said, “Out of the last 45 to 50 vehicle break-ins that have been reported only one person said their vehicle was locked.”  He went on the say that, “so far the thieves have not shown a tendency to break into locked vehicle because they want to get in and out of the area as quick as possible.”

 Here are some ways to protect you from crime:

·        LOCK IT OR LOSE IT.   Lock your vehicle every time you leave, even for a short time

·        Don’t leave valuable items in plain view

·        If you place items in the trunk, do it discreetly or before your arrive at your destination

·        If your car is parked in a carport or near your home, leave your exterior lights on at night

·        If you park on a street, choose a well-lit, open and visible space
