Sheriff’s office investigating entering auto cases

MILLEDGEVILLE — Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office officials are following up on new leads in the investigation into a string entering auto cases that occurred this week in the Allenwood subdivision off of Highway 49. 

Reports point to weapons as a possible motivation for the crimes. In the continuation of the investigation, patrol division deputies began speaking with the victims whose cars were broken into and have discovered handguns stolen from the vehicles. 

“Two handguns, in addition to the 9mm handgun that was stolen Monday morning, were also reported missing from the victim’s vehicles,” said Capt. Brad King of the sheriff’s office. 

According King, the sheriff’s office is following up on new leads.  

Around 2 a.m. Tuesday dispatch received several calls of an unknown person or person breaking into vehicles parked at Allenwood Circle and Allenwood Road residences. Immediately following the entering auto calls, a call came in in reference to a vehicle reported stolen from the same area.

At approximately 5:30 a.m. a patrol division deputy got word that a call came in to the Milledgeville Police Department of a suspicious vehicle and shots fired within the same area. 

The vehicle matched the description of the car reported stolen from Allenwood Circle.

“A handgun was one of the items stolen from one of the vehicles from earlier that night, so we began investigating whether or not the gentlemen that were firing a gun in the area were the same men that broke into the cars,” said King. 

The vehicle and the handgun have both been confiscated and are being processed by law enforcement as part of the sheriff’s office investigation.
