FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has recently responded to several incidents in pool and clubhouse parking lots in neighborhoods where vehicles have been entered into and items stolen.

The majority of these incidents took place during daylight hours when there was a significant amount of foot traffic in the area.

In most of these instances, there was no “forced entry” into the vehicles, as they were left unlocked.

However, in several instances the windows were broken in, as items such as laptop computers and purses were left in the open on the front seat or console. To avoid being a victim, lock car doors and put valuables in the trunk outside of view when out using the pools, tennis courts and parks, said sheriff's office officials.
