Valdosta Recovering After Multiple Burglaries Over Weekend


A half dozen homes were broken between Friday and Sunday.

The suspects got away with TVs, Playstations, tablets, and even family photographs.

One of the burglaries on Friday ended in a chase after the getaway car struck one officer and almost another according to the Valdosta Police Department (VPD).

Despite the seemingly high number of burglaries, VPD says these numbers are normal.

"We're trying to be more proactive. We're actually going to discuss having some type of burglary unit or burglary detectives that specialize just in burglaries. That's all they'd investigate so that they can focus more on burglaries," said Lt. Aaron Kirk, Valdosta Police Department.

VPD has no suspects in the burglaries other than those that were captured during the police chase on Friday.

If you have any information on any of these cases, contact the Valdosta Police Department.
