Fayetteville police recorded a burglary and six entering autos in a two-day period last week.

The burglary was reported on May 22 at approximately 11:06 p.m. at a residence on Winona Drive off Ga. Highway 92 North.

Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said officers were told by the residents that the front door was open when returned home, with several items missing from the home.

Officers located some of the missing items on the property, Burdett said, adding that no forced entry into the home was observed.

Five of the six entered autos, all on May 21, occurred in the same general area.

The first of the entering auto incidents was reported at approximately 7:27 a.m. at a Virginia Highlands residence off South Jeff Davis Drive.

Officers were told that a backpack and a wallet containing cash, a driver’s license and a social security card were missing from a vehicle that had been left unlocked overnight, said Burdett.

A second entering auto was reported at 7:51 a.m. at a nearby residence on Virginia Highlands.

There was no forced entry to the vehicle where a cell phone, checkbooks, debit card and other miscellaneous items were stolen, Burdett said.

The third entering auto occurred at an Oakview Trace residence off South Jeff Davis Drive.

Burdett said officers arriving at 7:51 a.m. were told that two unlocked vehicles had driver’s licenses, bank and fuel cards stolen.

Another entering auto report came at approximately 8 a.m. from a residence on Cobblestone Boulevard.

Officers at the scene were told that the rear passenger window in the vehicle was smashed overnight and a wallet, credit card and other miscellaneous items were stolen, said Burdett.

The final entering auto on May 21 was reported at approximately 7:59 p.m. at a residence on Orchard View off South Jeff Davis Drive.

Burdett said officers were told that the remote garage door opener that was inside their vehicle was missing but nothing else appeared to have been taken.
