Another entering auto at the apartments, this one on Dec. 31, had the vehicle entered after a door was pried open and an iPad and several watches stolen, reports said.

The end of the holiday season came with two entering autos at the Flat Creek Golf Course clubhouse. Both occurring on Dec. 31, one of the vehicles had a window busted and a wallet and jacket stolen, while the other had a busted window and a wallet stolen, police said.

The owner of a white 2014 Cadillac SRX on Jan. 3 had his vehicle stolen from a convenience store on Ga. Highway 92 North and Rivers Road, according to Sheriff Barry Babb.
