Man Busted For Car Smashings

These vehicle entries have occurred over the last several months, with the majority occurring in the areas of Hixon Forest, Granddad’s Bluff, Myrick Park, the County Highway B bicycle trail parking lot and Valley View Mall parking lot. In these cases the suspect smashed out a window of the vehicle and took valuables that were in plain sight.
