Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigators on Sept. 12 arrested an Atlanta man in connection with a burglary and five entering autos that occurred at three residences in central Fayette during the summer months.
Michael C. Sims, 33, was charged with burglary and five counts of entering auto, according to Fayette County Jail records.
Sheriff Barry Babb said the incidents at three homes on Hillred Drive off Ebenezer Church Road occurred during the July 30 through Aug. 1 time frame.
At the site of the burglary, a rear window was found busted and a TV stolen, said Babb.
The entering autos at one residence came when two unlocked vehicles were entered, with a wallet and a firearm stolen, Babb said.
At another residence, three unlocked vehicles were entered, with a wallet and cash stolen, said Babb.
Law enforcement agencies constantly remind citizens to never leave a vehicle unlocked at home or in the community, and to never leave anything of value in plain sight.
