Today, at least 5 vehicles were burglarized at the Hickory Hills ramp on Flint creek near Decatur.
At least one vehicle had a window broken to gain entry. Some of the vehicles were unlocked. Several eye witnesses saw the thief in the act, but not all put 2 and 2 together.
Fortunately, at least one eye witness did come up with 4 and got the tag number and description of the thief and called the police. I haven't heard if they have apprehended him yet or if any property has been recovered.
One witness told me that the truck used by the thief was registered to one of the thieves arrested last week for about 50 similar vehicle burglaries. See the Decatur Daily article: http://www.decaturdaily.com/decaturdaily/news/020220/thefts.shtml
He said that the police registration check came up with a name, but "Charles" was all he could remember.
That's all I know about it right now, but I will post more if/when it becomes available.
Good luck and good fishin'
