LCSO Looks for Help in Solving Burglaries

The Lauderdale County Sheriffs Department is asking for your help in the search for suspects wanted in a rash of burglaries.

In a month,four convenience stores in have been burglarized. Of those, three occurred in the past six days.

Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun said the burglaries seem to be related.

"They're gaining entry to businesses by breaking out glass windows or doors. And then stealing mainly cigarettes or tobacco-related items, as well as some alcohol, I believe, in one instance," said Calhoun. "So we're asking that anyone in the community that has any information, if they would contact us, we would greatly appreciate it. And if they contact Crimestoppers, they would certainly be eligible for a reward. Many times in these businesses, these individuals do more damage to the building and to the glass than actually what they take. We want to get this stopped and we'll need the community's help to do it."

If you have any information about these burglaries, you're asked to call
Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860.
