CUMMING, Ga. — A neighbor saw four suspicious men around her cul-de-sac and called 911 while they entered a car and allegedly stole items, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 3:30 a.m. Sept. 20, a woman in the 5000 block of Devonshire Way told deputies she saw four men steal items out of her neighbor’s 2001 Yukon. She said she recognized one of the men, because he lived in the neighborhood.

When deputies arrived at the victim’s address, she told deputies she could tell someone had gone through her car. A purse and a Garmin GPS were missing.

While the victim and deputies searched the Yukon, deputies located the four suspects off Devonshire Way and found a purse with the victim’s ID inside.

The victim said her wallet, cash and credit cards were inside the purse, but she was still missing one credit card and her GPS.

Deputies obtained warrants for theft by entering autos, a felony, and were later informed the suspects were intoxicated and under the age of 21.
