Vehicle Break-In's

The Fayetteville Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance with reducing motor vehicle break-in’s. 


From 2300 hours on Sunday, April 12th, through 0700 hours this morning, April 14th, 26 vehicles were broken into in the Sector 6 area of the city, (see attached map).  21 of the 26 vehicles were left unsecured.  Valuables such as GPS systems, money, Blackberry phones, and I Pods were taken in each incident listed. 


Normally, in crimes of this nature, suspects walk through a parking lot or neighborhood pulling door handles until they find an unlocked vehicle; they are in and out of the vehicle in less than 30 seconds.


These crimes can only be prevented with cooperation between the police and members of the community. Citizens can take simple precautions, such as removing valuables from sight and locking doors, to avoid becoming a victim.  Serial numbers should be recorded and kept in a safe place to assist with recovery efforts should property be stolen.


For more information on crime prevention and safety tips, please contact a Crime Prevention Specialist at (910) 433-1033 or (910) 433-1034.
