Valdosta, GA - Multiple residences in the city have been burglarized this week. The burglars made off with everything from TVs, to gaming systems, to an electronic cigarette.
Police say they don't have any evidence that the break-ins are connected, but in most cases, a door or a window was left unlocked, which is dangerous, even for short periods of time.
"If you have to go out of town or if you're going on vacation, make sure you keep everything locked. Let some trusted neighbors know you want to stop your mail. Have somebody pick up your news paper. You can actually contact the police department and we will extra patrol your home for you while you're away", says Lt. Kirk, with the Valdosta Police Department.
Lt. Kirk says many burglars pay attention to your schedule and also your garbage to see if you have anything that would be worth selling on the street.
If you have any information on these burglaries, call the Valdosta Police Department at (229) 242-2606.
