Auto burglaries ‘made easy’ in Washington County with unlocked vehicles
Washington County, Tennessee Sheriff Keith Sexton says a recent rash of vehicle burglaries are not smash-and-grab jobs but thieves simply helping themselves to items left in unlocked cars and trucks.
Sexton’s report said of the 40 reported break-ins, at least a dozen of them have seen personal effects including guns stolen from unsecured vehicles.
Detectives are analyzing home surveillance video from previous thefts and Sexton said overnight patrols are being increased.
