Water’s Edge hit with entering autos, again

Posted in:

A cluster of entering autos were reported in the Water’s Edge subdivision off of Log Cabin Road.

A .9 milimeter handgun was reported from one vehicle and a book bag full of electronics from another.

All totaled, four entering auto incident reports were recorded from Water’s Edge, while another one was taken from an entering auto on nearby GMC Road. In each of the incidents, “contents were strewn around” the inside of the vehicles.

This marks the second rash of entering autos around Water’s Edge in the last nine months. Late last year, numerous incidents also were reported, and a man was later arrested.
