Jonesboro police investigating rash of car break-ins | Crime
Jonesboro police say crooks who broke into four cars recently got away with a GPS unit and a gun.
The first break-in was reported at 5:30 a.m. in the 2100-block of Hampton Drive.
The victim told police he discovered a door ajar on one of his vehicles. According to Officer Heath McEntire’s report, the man searched his car and found that a Tom Tom GPS unit, valued at $200, was missing. The man said three other vehicles had been “gone through” but nothing else was missing.
Less than three hours later Officer McEntire was called to the 1600-block of Auburn Place in reference to another vehicle break-in.
This time the crooks reportedly stole a Mag-Lite rechargeable flashlight, valued at $200, and a .45 caliber Taurus handgun with a light/laser combo worth $600.
Both break-ins are under investigation.
