Officers work 2 burglaries, 3 entering autos


The period of Oct. 12-15 came with two burglary reports and three entering autos across Fayette County.

Deputies on Oct. 15 responded to a Crabapple Road residence off Ga. Highway 92 South in connection with a reported burglary.

Sheriff Barry Babb said a female resident said her granddaughter had been awakened by dogs barking. A check of the house revealed that an exterior door was ajar, with the woman reporting that she heard someone outside the house.

The woman told deputies she called out and a man responded, giving his name and saying he was looking for a family member, Babb said, adding that being told the family member was not at the home, the man reportedly left.

The woman told deputies she looked through the house and found that a guitar was missing, said Babb.

Babb said detectives are investigating the case.

A second burglary in the unincorporated area was reported on Oct. 12 at a business on Ga. Highway 85 North. Though there were no signs of forced entry, Babb said deputies were told that a rear door had been entered and 11 tires stolen.

The unincorporated areas also had two recent entering auto incidents.

Babb said on Oct. 14 incident at a residence on Warren Way off South Jeff Davis Drive involved a hunting bow stolen from an unlocked vehicle.

And on Oct. 14, a passenger window was busted and a wallet was taken from a vehicle at a Longview Road residence off Ga. Highway 314, Babb said.

In Fayetteville, medications were stolen from a vehicle on Pavilion Parkway. Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said there were no signs of forced entry.
