Sheriff seeking videos of vehicle break-ins on Highgrove Drive


Residents of the Highgrove subdivision off Redwine Road are asked to contact the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office if they have video footage of vehicle break-ins that occurred on Oct. 28, where vehicles at three residences were entered.  

Deputies during the morning hours of Oct. 28 responded to reports of vehicle break-ins at three residences on Highgrove Drive. 

Sheriff Barry Babb said the incidents appear to have occurred between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. In one case an open garage was entered to access the vehicle inside. 

The thieves targeted unlocked vehicles stealing purses and wallets. Stolen financial transaction cards were subsequently used in an attempt to obtain merchandise from at least one store in the Lithia Springs area, said Babb.

Babb said detectives were quickly able to identify a red Toyota Camry as a suspect vehicle which was confirmed with residential video footage. The vehicle is not local to Georgia and is believed to have traveled back out of state.

Residents in the area are asked to contact the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at 770-461-6353 or Detective C. Germanowski if they have additional video footage of suspicious persons or vehicles in areas near the Highgrove subdivision overnight.


  1. I am astounded at how many folks leave garage doors open and cars unlocked in their driveways. Even more astonishing is the fact that they leave wallets and purses, cash and jewelry, laptops, I phones and I pads, guns and who knows what else free for the taking. To quote Forrest Gump, “stupid is as stupid does”.
