GPD investigating eight additional vehicle burglaries
Graham Police Department investigated eight vehicle burglary reports Monday. According to GPD Chief Brent Bullock, the burglaries appeared to have occurred Sunday night or early Monday, with the suspects entering each vehicle through an unlocked door.
On Monday, Jan. 10, GPD officers responded at 5:23 a.m. to the 1300 block of Calaveras in response to a resident reporting they captured two suspects on a surveillance video attempting to enter their vehicles, Chief Bullock wrote in a press release. The resident reported the suspects on the video appeared to be the same that attempted to enter their vehicles Dec. 22, 2021.
Five vehicle burglaries were reported in a separate incident the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 22 on Rolling Hills Drive, Calaveras, Roanoke and Pearl Streets in Graham. Each victim in the Dec. 22 incident had their vehicle searched by an individual, or individuals, with no missing items. The video taken in the most recent burglaries Sunday was posted on the GPD Facebook page to help identify the suspects.
“In the surveillance video (...) the suspects are seen trying the door handles on the vehicles they are attempting to break into. Two vehicles appear to be locked, so the suspects walk past these vehicles,” Chief Bullock wrote. “We ask that everyone lock the doors on their vehicles while they are unattended. Again, thieves are lazy and are not going to work for anything.”
On Monday, officers also responded to reports made in the 1300 block of Cliff Drive, 1200 block of Texas Street and 1300 block of South Rolling Hills Drive.
