Chain of car burglaries reported in Hartselle

Seven car burglaries were reported on different streets in Hartselle overnight on Tues., Aug. 29.

According to the Hartselle Police Chief Ron Puckett, from the compiled reports, no cars were damaged or vandalized during the burglaries.

“Every car that was broken into overnight was unlocked,” Puckett said. “For each car that was entered, pretty much everything was taken from inside of it from handguns to purses to cash. Every time you leave valuables in your car, especially when it is unlocked you are putting your belongings at risk to be stolen. We are making it too easy for those seeking to commit crimes, to follow through with those crimes.”

The car burglaries were reported on Rock Street, Frost Street, Nelson Street, Main Street, Elizabeth Drive and Salem Road, with three of those roads being close together.

“There are thieves breaking into vehicles again, and they will continue to do it as long as there is opportunity,” Puckett said. “Please lock your vehicles, because they are going to take advantage of an unlocked vehicle. It will always be hard to protect people’s property when you leave property unsecure.”

Puckett said they received two other reports of vehicles being broken into this week; One was located at Sparkman Park and the other was CVS pharmacy.

It’s too easy to go into the cars and there is a next one..

Three handguns were among the items taken including: A Glock 22, Taurus 9mm, and a S-CCY 9mm.

If you have any information that can help lead to the arrest of those involved in the car burglaries, please contact the Hartselle Police Department.
