Peachtree City police investigate burglary, 3 entering autos cases


A restaurant on Ga. Highway 54 West in Peachtree City was the site of a March 21 burglary in which a door was smashed and the store’s cash register was emptied.

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said officers responded to the burglary call and found that the patio door had been smashed. The manager found that the restaurant’s cash register had been emptied.

Peachtree City police also reported three autos entered on March 21.

The first entering auto occurred on Walnut Grove Road. The resident informed officers that a car key, a flashlight and change was stolen after two unlocked vehicles were entered, said Hyatt.

The second entering auto on Walnut Grove Road was also reported March 21. Officers noted no forced entry of a vehicle from which a key fob and a knife were missing, Hyatt said.

Also on March 21, a vehicle was entered at a residence on Birch Road. Hyatt said the vehicle showed no signs of forced entry, adding that a wallet was stolen.

The victim told officers the wallet was later found with the help of neighborhood kids, though her drivers’ license and several Target gift cards were missing, said Hyatt.
