Vehicles broken into in Arbor Springs

by Wes Mayer

Four vehicles were broken into Tuesday night in the Arbor Springs neighborhood off U.S. Highway 29 North, authorities said.

There were four vehicles broken into in front of three homes on Wisteria Way and Woodcliff Court, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office. All four vehicles were unlocked, Yarbrough said, and the suspects simply opened the doors and stole what they could.

The stolen items include a shotgun, an iPad, a wallet, a watch and a few other valuables, Yarbrough said. Investigators are currently monitoring local ATMs to hopefully get a photo of the suspect.
