COWETA COUNTY, Ga. - A string of car break-ins in Coweta County has one neighborhood on edge.
It happened sometime between 2 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. Sunday in Beaver Creek subdivision off Highway 154 near Sharpsburg. Deputies said the thieves hit more than 20 parked cars making off with wallets, cash, guns, and even electronics.
Deputies said most of the vehicles were unlocked, but some had windows broken to get visible items inside the cars.
"I spoke to a few neighbors today who were very disturbed, who had a lot more taken than I did. And we want to find the people who did this. We work hard for our things and we shouldn't have to worry about this,” said a resident of the Beaver Creek neighborhood who did not want her name used.
The crooks were caught on camera by one of the homeowners and then again pulling into the nearby Flash Foods around 5:30 a.m. Investigators said they were able to link the men because they used some of the stolen credit cards collected in the neighborhood to purchase gas and snacks.
Anyone who recognizes them or knows more about the thefts is asked to call the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.
