Police are investigating the theft of a 2002 Silver Toyota 4-Runner from a Hillside Drive home on Sept. 17. A resident told officers the SUV was unlocked with the keys in the ignition and that another vehicle parked nearby had been broken into, as well. The car was found four days later at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Cornelius. Officers responded to two additional vehicle break-ins this week in which GPS units and a car stereo were targeted. A kayak valued at $1,500 was stolen from a Lake Davidson dock, and an unknown suspect committed fraud at the Wells-Fargo on Main Street by using another customer’s bank account on counterfeit checks. Details on these stories and more ( along with a tally of the week’s arrests, citations, and traffic enforcement) may be found below.
