Forsyth County News


Anyone with any information about the thefts from vehicles in Riverstone Plantation subdivision is encouraged to call the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Crime Stoppers hotline at (770) 888-7308. Callers may remain anonymous.

Authorities are continuing to investigate a recent rash of thefts from vehicles in a north Forsyth neighborhood.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Lt. Col. Gene Moss said no arrests have been made in connection with the crimes in Riverstone Plantation subdivision off Jot Em Down Road.

"Those are isolated incidents specific to that subdivision," Moss said, adding that the agency received about 16 reports of vehicles in the neighborhood being entered overnight July 30-31.

Moss said all of the vehicles had been left unlocked.

Sheriff’s reports show that various items, including global positioning system units, a laptop computer, sunglasses and cash were taken.

It also appeared that glove boxes and consoles in the vehicles had been rummaged through, with items scattered on the seats.

In about half of the incidents, reports noted that nothing appeared to have been taken.

In June, the clubhouse at Riverstone Plantation was the site of a stabbing that resulted from what authorities said was a drug deal gone wrong.

Four local teenagers were arrested in connection with that incident.

Moss reiterated authorities’ remarks following a similar rash of thefts from vehicles earlier this summer in other northern Forsyth neighborhoods.

He cautioned residents to remove valuables from their vehicles and keep their doors locked.
