The Corinth Police Department is investigating another round of car burglaries that happened in the time frame of overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning.
It was concentrated in the residential areas in and around the tree streets north of East Shiloh Road. Streets hit included Poplar, Willow, Daniel Drive and areas east of Daniel Drive. Corinth P.D. received seven reports of car burglaries.
“Every one of them were unlocked vehicles,” said Chief Ralph Dance. “They’re not knocking windows out. They’re not prying doors open.”
It is a familiar story over the last few years in the city.
“We’ve made several arrests on people doing this, but it’s not just one group,” he said. “Some of them are teenage kids. Some of them are adults.”
A resident on Poplar Street posted a video showing what appears to be two young white males in their carport. One of the males is seen opening the door of one of the cars and looking around inside. It was about 3:45 a.m. Thursday.
The suspects are typically walking the neighborhoods, said Dance.
Several items were taken from vehicles in this latest round of burglaries. He said it appeared some items were dropped while trying to get into a truck on Willow Road.
It is the largest rash of auto burglaries in several months, Dance said.
“Don’t keep valuables in plain sight,” he said. “Lock them in your trunk or take them in the house.”
