Authorities investigate vehicle burglary spree in Summertown
Deputies with the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department were called upon several times to investigate when residents in the Summertown area discovered that their vehicles had been burglarized recently.
On Saturday deputies responded to a Turnpike Road home regarding a burglary in progress. The forty-two year old victim reported that he was alerted to the crime when his dog began to bark. He said that, at first, he had thought little about it, but went to check when the dog began to bark a second time.
When he stepped outside, the victim said he noticed that the dome light was on inside of his truck, and an interior light could be seen flickering inside of his RV. He said that he called to his wife to bring him his gun and met her at the back door. She told deputies that when she first looked out she had seen “two figures run out of the RV,” and run away from their property.
Deputies conducted a search of the area but were unable to locate the suspects at that time.
The victims reported that nothing appeared to be missing.
A Turnpike resident reported last week that a number of items had been stolen out of her vehicle while she was preparing to go to work.
The victim reported that she had let her dogs out at around 5:30 that morning. She said she always carries one of her dogs with her to work and that she unlocked her vehicle to put the dog inside. She then went back into the house to finish preparing for her day.
The victim said that as she was leaving around an hour and a half later, she noticed that the gate at her steps, which she had closed, was standing open. When she opened the door to her 2014 Chevrolet, she found that papers from the glove box were strewn about inside. She said that her all of her textbooks were missing along with her medical statements, a check book, all of her tax return information, all of her school work, calculators, and other paperwork. Also, she said that a missing bag contained personal information for one of her clients. Loss was said to be more than $1,400.
The victim told the deputy that she had left $60 in cash in her neighbor’s vehicle and wondered whether it might have been targeted, as well. The deputy was unable to make contact with the neighbor, but said that the money was visible and appeared to have been untouched.
The same day deputies responded to a King Street home in Summertown where that resident, too, reported a vehicle burglary. The victim told deputies that sometime between 11:15 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. the previous day someone had entered her unlocked car in her driveway and stolen her Ruger handgun. Also taken were twenty compact discs and a pair of MAUI Jim sunglasses. She estimated her loss to be $669.
Deputies responded to a home on Silverton Drive Friday where the resident reported a $315 loss. She said that someone had stolen her wallet out of her unlocked vehicle sometime overnight. The wallet contained her cards and papers along with $300 cash.
Investigation into all of the cases is on-going through the department’s Criminal Investigation Division. Anyone who has information about any of the crimes is urged to contact the department at 931-762-3626.
