Simpson County Sheriff's Office asks public to use ReportIt

October 8, 2013

Investigators from the Simpson County Sheriff's Office are seeking help from the public in a rash of auto burglaries that have occurred in Mendenhall over the past couple of weeks.

Police have received reports from residents who say their cars windows were smashed and items taken. Police say the burglaries have been occuring in the early morning hours just before dawn. Police are not releasing any information on a possible suspect, but say that a black Acura sedan with no license plates has been observed leaving the area shortly after the break-ins occurred.

SCSO Investigator Chris Wallace advises the public to keep valuables out of plain view or out of the car.

Wallace is also looking into a reported burglary of a house along Highway 469 on September 26 where several guns were taken. Wallace says that if serial numbers of stolen items were pre-recorded by the owners, they would be easier to track and recover. He recommends that the public use the to register serial numbers on guns, computers, trailers or other serialized numbers. Wallace says that if the serial number is recorded and the stolen item is sold in a pawn shop, the police can track it and possibly apprehend a suspect.
