More than a dozen RVs and fifth-wheelers were entered on Nov. 19 at self-storage facility on Dividend Drive in Peachtree City.

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said investigators determined that the property of Cube Smart on Dividend Drive was entered between 2-4 a.m. on Nov. 19 after a hole had been cut in the rear fence.

Hyatt said 14 RVs and fifth-wheelers were entered, of which some were unlocked while others had a door forced.

Jewelry, along with numerous household times, were stolen, Hyatt said.

In Fayetteville, a burglary occurred at the Lens Crafters store at the Fayette Pavilion on Nov. 21.

Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said officers at approximately 12:50 a.m. responded to the store on an intrusion call.

“When the officers arrived, they observed the business’s front door was still locked, and a large rock was thrown through the window shattering the glass,” Burdett said. “The officers conducted a security check to ensure the suspects were no longer on the premises.”

Burdett said the key holder for the business was contacted, and that individual responded to the scene shortly thereafter.

“The officers walked through the business with the key holder, and they observed several eyeglasses were missing from the display shelves and scattered on the floor. The safe was also open, but nothing was missing,” said Burdett.

Also in Fayetteville, officers at approximately 6:40 p.m. on Nov. 19 were dispatched to a restaurant on 805 West Lanier Avenue in reference to an entering auto call.

Burdett said police met with the complainant/employee of the restaurant, who reported that they parked their vehicle in the restaurant’s side parking lot.

When they went outside to their car, they observed that their driver’s window was busted. The complainant stated reported that although the vehicle was rifled through, no items were missing, Burdett said.
