Entering auto cases on the rise after the weekend

Police in Dougherty and Lee County want to remind you to be vigilant and keep your car doors locked after a rash of entering auto cases from the weekend.

Albany police say that six entering auto cases happened on Saturday on multiple locations including Flynn Court, Hidden Court, Schley Avenue, and Doncaster Drive.

The one thing they all had in common according to police was that all of the car doors were unlocked.

Albany police weren't the only ones battling the problem as the Lee County Sheriff's Office were facing a similar issue.

Sheriff's officials warn residents of the Rose Court area to be vigilant and lock their doors after several vehicles and a storage shed were burglarized.

If you have information on any of these cases, contact the Albany Police Department at 430-5260 or the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 759-6012.
