AUGUSTA — Several vehicles were reportedly burglarized in the Sewall Street area Tuesday morning, and one entire vehicle was reported stolen, as well, though police said that vehicle was later recovered.

Augusta police Staff Sgt. Eric Lloyd said city police received multiple reports of burglaries to motor vehicles Tuesday morning, and that they are investigating them to see if they were committed by the same person or people.

Lloyd said it appeared that all vehicles involved were left unlocked.

“It is extremely important to lock your vehicle at night,” Lloyd advised residents. “If any residents saw anything suspicious I would encourage them to reach out to Officer Cowles or Officer Raymond, who are the investigating officers, with any information they may have. As is typical with most burglary to motor vehicle complaints we take, they usually occur during the overnight hours, when they are afforded the cover of darkness.”

Lloyd declined to reveal any examples of what was reportedly taken from the vehicles, citing concern that information could be evidence in the case if police are able to locate and charge a suspect or suspects in the crime.

Six burglaries from motor vehicles were reported Tuesday morning between 7:04 a.m. and 10:38 a.m.. Burglaries were reported on Sewall, King, George, Woodlawn and Taylor streets, according to police documents.

Also, at 5:20 a.m. Tuesday, the theft of a motor vehicle, not just its contents, was reported on Sewall Street. Lloyd said the vehicle was later located elsewhere, but said the report on that incident had not been completed so further information wasn’t available Wednesday.
