“Lock your Car” Those are the words of Taylorsville Police Chief Dennis James. Taylorsville Police are investigating at least 16 vehicle break-ins overnight. Several vehicles were entered in the Meadow Ridge Apartment area as well as vehicles on 6th street. Numerous items were taken during the night and and it appears the vehicles were all unlocked.
A suspect was sighted following one of the break-ins but they fled on foot. The suspect was described only as a black male teen. The investigation is continuing. Chief James urges citizens to contact the department if they have any information that might help the investigation. You can also phone Alexander County CRIMESTOPPERS at 828-632-8555.
