Items stolen from cars in west Forsyth subdivisions
Targeted vehicles were usually unlocked

At least 22 vehicles in two west Forsyth subdivisions were recently broken into after suspects apparently targeted the neighborhoods on subsequent nights.

On Tuesday, June 13, deputies responded to at least 10 reports of car break-ins in the Polo Fields Subdivision, which is located off Majors Road, according to incident reports.

The break-ins, which are suspected to have occurred overnight on Monday, largely targeted unlocked cars in the subdivision.

Stolen items included sunglasses, purses, computers, several firearms and pieces of jewelry, among other objects.

A day later, on Wednesday, June 14, deputies took statements from at least 12 homeowners in the Ashebrooke subdivision, which is located off Bethelview Road, who reported their cars had been broken into overnight on Tuesday.

The majority of those cars were also unlocked, and stolen items included sunglasses, purses and credit and debit cards, as well as other items.

At both subdivisions, victims overwhelmingly found “the driver’s side door slightly open,” which they said had not been the case the night before, reports said.

It was not immediately known whether the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has identified suspects. The department’s crime scene unit is investigating the incidents.
