Investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a recent rash of autobreakings in the River Walk Subdivision, in Simpsonville.

The break-ins occurred on June 18th and June 19th. At this time, the Sheriff’s Office is investigating seven separate incidents and is urging residents to be vigilant of their surroundings.  Investigators request that anyone with information related to these incidents, to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 23-CRIME.  

Sheriff Johnny Mack Brown reminds the citizens of Greenville County to lock their vehicles and secure all valuable items either on their person, or in their homes. Items such as purses and GPS systems, that are visible from outside a vehicle may attract suspects to the cars where break-ins often occur.

Video surveillance systems, with a quality picture, might also assist investigators with making arrests and act as a deterrent to potential burglars. Sheriff Brown also reminds citizens to park their vehicles inside a garage, or a well-lit area, and to alert trusted neighbors when traveling so they may keep a watchful eye of the property.
