Law enforcement in Colquitt County are investigating several vehicle break-ins over the past few days with theft of property totaling more than $7,000.
The Colquitt County Sheriff's Office received reports of an AK-47 rifle stolen from a pickup truck Monday near Norman Park.
That truck and gun belong to Marvin Webb of Eastgate Drive. Webb told police the gun is valued at $1,500.
More than $5,000 in property was stolen from Maria Ramirez of Eastgate Circle. The stolen property include cash, check book, debit card and a Coach purse.
Moultrie police are also investigating vehicle break-ins in the city.
Kenny Flowers says he thinks it was some teenagers who stole some change and a gun clip from two of his vehicles on Third Street.
Police remind residents to keep belongings out of plain sight and it's best just to leave valuables at home if traveling.
