Several Grahamites were recently the victims of what local law enforcement officers are calling the first rash of vehicle burglaries of the summer.

According to a press release from the Graham Police Department, on Thursday, July 24, 2014, the Graham Police Department investigated several vehicle burglaries within the 1600 block of South Rogers Drive.

The first report was at approximately 7 a.m. when the complainant reported that three of the vehicles parked at his house had been rummaged through, and loose change and computer parts left in the vehicle were missing at the time.

About 15 minutes later, officers responded to another vehicle burglary report in the same area. The complainant there also reported that he had three vehicles burglarized, and personal property was taken along with a computer tablet.

Shortly after the second call, officers responded to four additional vehicle burglaries in the area. Two of the victims reported that the suspects walked into an open garage door to burglarize the vehicles, and credit and debit cards and wallets were taken, along with a rifle from one vehicle.

The same morning, Graham Police also responded to two reports of vehicle burglaries at the 100 block of Chaparral on Spivey Hill. Upon the officers' arrival, they learned that the jurisdiction fell to the Young County Sheriff's Department. At that time, a deputy responded to the scene to take the report.
