The Hendersonville Police Department is currently investigating a rash of car burglaries that occurred Saturday afternoon. A total of 17 car burglaries were reported, two in Rockland Park and fifteen in Drakes Creek North. The burglaries appear to be similar in method of operation to an organized group of people who travel from state to state committing these type crimes.
The method of operation is that they will look into vehicles to see if there are any valuables, such as purses or wallets, in view. They smash the car window and steal the item. They immediately begin using the stolen credit cards.
The suspects in tonight’s burglaries did just that at two area stores. Suspect one is a black female, 25-35 years of age, light colored denim jeans, light colored shoes, bleached blonde hair, black tank top. Suspect two is a black female 25-35 years of age, black shoes, black and white stoned washed leggings, and black short sleeve shirt.
They were seen operating a 2017-2018 silver Chrysler 300.
The Hendersonville Police Department encourages anyone attending large events such as public parks or other large events to keep all valuables out of the passenger compartment of their vehicles.
