THOMASVILLE — Burglars struck at least 10 homes in the city during the past 30 days, stealing electronic appliances, including flat-screen televisions and other residential items, police said Friday.

“This is not the first time we’ve seen burglaries like this but these are the biggest number of burglaries of this magnitude we’ve seen in a while,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, public information officer of the Thomasville Police Department.

Hampton said the department has been busy investigating the burglaries.

“They have been spread throughout Thomasville,” he said. “They have not been in one particular place or neighborhood.”

Many of the burglaries occurred during daytime hours and points of entry to the residences have varied at each crime scene, Hampton said.

“Anyone seeing suspicious vehicles or persons in the neighborhood are asked to notify the police department so we can get an officer to check out the situation before another crime can take place,” Hampton said.

Anyone with information on these crimes or that knows of anyone who might be in possession of any possible stolen items should notify the Thomasville Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, he said.

There is also a possible cash reward for any information given in the solving of these crimes, according to the PIO.

Residents may call Crime Stoppers at 227-3305, the police department at 226-2101, or CID at 227-3302.
