Burglaries, break-ins, trespass incidents under investigation

In the midst of the holiday season, Elberton and Elbert County residents might want to take extra caution against any “grinches” seeking to steal Christmas.
Elberton Police are investigating reports of a number of burglaries, auto break-ins and trespassing at residences within the city limits in recent days.
According to police reports, officers responded last Tuesday to a report of criminal trespass at an East Church Street residence and an auto being entered outside a home of Lee Street.
On Wednesday, burglaries with forced entry were reported at residences on Almond Street, where damaged property was observed, and Kathwood Drive.
An auto entry was reported Thursday at a residence on West Tate Street, and a criminal trespass report was investigated at a home on Jones Street.
The Elbert County Sheriff’s Office, meanwhile, is investigating two criminal trespass reports from Kathwood Drive Extension and at SunnyBrook Apartments.
