Clemson Police investigating Vehicle Break-ins

The Clemson City Police Department is investigating vehicle break-ins over the weekend.  During the night or early morning hours of Sunday night, residents along the areas of Berkeley Drive and Country Walk subdivision experienced vehicles having been broken into by thieves.  Some of the vehicles were left unlocked; others were locked and had the window broken out. This type of activity occurred a couple months ago in another part of the City and the Police Department arrested two individuals responsible for those.  Clemson City Police Chief Jimmy Dixon says, “It is apparent there are other individuals either walking around or driving around during the late night/early morning hours searching for articles to steal.” While the police are working diligently to find the suspect(s) responsible for these incidents; they are asking citizens to ensure there is nothing of value within plain sight left within their vehicles or outside their residence left unsecured.  Police are also asking residents to call the Clemson City Police Department at 864-624-2000 whenever they see individuals walking around their neighborhoods that are not familiar and especially when seen during the nighttime hours.  “We are not asking our residents to take matters into their own hands; call the Police Department and allow us to determine the validity of those that may be observed.  Let me reinforce a statement made within a previous message to our citizens: “The only non-important call is the one you decide not to make.”’ said Chief Dixon.
