Police seek men in string of break-ins


Police in south Charlotte say they believe four recent break-ins in the Spring Valley neighborhood may all be tied to one group of men.

Thieves broke into four homes in the neighborhood dating back to July 18, with at least three of the incidents taking place in the afternoon. Police say one person was home at the time of the break-in at that home, and in one case the victims were out of town so it is not clear when the home was broken into.

The only description police have is of a group of white men driving a black vehicle. Authorities sent out alerts to the neighborhood, and one resident went to 65 homes in the area to hand out fliers about the incidents. Police also have assigned extra resources to the area, according to Officer Beth Jackson, including bike patrols.

Police ask anyone with information about these crimes to call 911.
