The King George County Sheriff’s Office has warned county residents to remember to lock their vehicles and remove all valuables from them when they park them at night. The warning comes after a rash of thefts from cars parked in the Presidential Lakes Subdivision across from the Post Office on Route 3.
“Since March 25th, we have received numerous complaints about someone entering people’s vehicles during the nighttime in Presidential Lakes and stealing various items,” said Lt. Monty Clift of the King George Sheriff’s Office.
“All of the vehicles which were entered were unlocked,” Clift said. “Residents in the area are asked to remove any valuables from their vehicles and to keep their vehicles locked.”
According to the Sheriff’s Office, items stolen include: loose change, cell phones, iPads, iPods, laptop computers and GPS units. Clift said most of the thefts occurred on Arthur, Hoover and Buchanan Drives.
“There was no forced entry. The vehicles were unlocked and items were taken from the seats, the glove compartments and the center consoles,” said Clift.
