PINSON — Several residents of a Pinson subdivision said their vehicles were broken into and one car was stolen. Some of the break-ins were caught on surveillance video.
Neighbors in Tyler Loop Cove woke up to find their cars had been rummaged through in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 3.
Surveillance video shows one suspect breaking a car window on Edgefield Lane around 4 a.m. Nothing was taken from that car, but you can see the suspect continuing to check for unlocked vehicles in the same driveway. Clips of the incident show him gaining access to several cars. The homeowners installed security cameras after their cars were broken into in June of 2018.
On the road, you can see another person driving a dark-colored vehicle and at one point a third suspect gets out of the car and searches for unlocked vehicles.
One neighbor’s white Dodge Charger was stolen from a driveway on Fairmont Drive.
At least two car owners said they filed reports with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating and is asking citizens to help make it harder on criminals by locking their doors.
