Eagle Pointer 3/2 – 3/8/2014
During the evening hours of Thursday, February 27th, approximately nineteen vehicles were unlawfully entered in residential neighborhoods along Cahaba Valley Road near Doug Baker Boulevard, in north Shelby County. Credit cards, checkbooks, cash, computers, phones and guns were all stolen from the vehicles. An unlocked vehicle with the keys left in it was also stolen from the same area that night. The common theme with these thefts is that all of the vehicles that were unlawfully entered and the one that was stolen were left unlocked.
In September of 2013, the Sheriff’s Office issued a press release advising residents of a similar night of thefts from cars in the same area. The common theme there was that most of the vehicles were unlocked. In November of 2013, the Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, and surrounding law enforcement agencies launched the crime prevention and awareness campaign titled, “Lock It. Hide It. Keep It.” The focus of that campaign is to encourage residents to help us help them prevent property crime.
The message is simple: •Lock It: Lock your vehicle every time you leave it unattended and always lock your valuables in the trunk.
•Hide It: If you don’t have a trunk, hide valuables under the seats, in the glove box, or other compartments within the vehicle.
•Keep It: Personal responsibility is the best prevention to safeguard personal property and to prevent becoming a victim.
To reduce your chances of being a victim, please remove valuables from your car at night and lock your car's doors.
Sheriff’s investigators are currently looking into leads that may possibly identify suspects involved in last Thursday nights thefts, and have posted pictures of a person of interest on the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
Anyone with information about last Thursday night’s thefts is urged to contact the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office directly at (205)669-4181, through the Secret Witness line at (205)669-9116 or through our website at www.ShelbySO.com by clicking on the “Report Criminal Activity” link and choosing the “General Information” category.
