A Lincolnton subdivision recently experienced a high volume of vehicular break-ins, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies are seeking the public’s help in the incidents and reminding residents to keep their vehicles locked, since all of the vehicles targeted in this month’s break-ins remained unlocked, according to an agency press release.

Residents in the Kings Grant subdivision, located off N.C. 150 East in Lincolnton, discovered items missing from their vehicles on Monday morning, deputies said.

At the time of the incidents, the vehicles had been located on Royal Drive, Queens Drive, Prince Drive and Downing Court.

Individuals also told the Sheriff’s Office they spotted a black Honda with bright lights in the area around 3 a.m.

Stolen items included money, sunglasses and a flashlight, among others, the release said.

Deputies warned residents to keep all personal belongings, especially expensive items such as GPS units, cell phones and laptops, hidden under a seat or out of one’s vehicle.

The Sheriff’s Office urged the community to stay vigilant of any suspicious people and to call 911 if they witness someone looking into vehicles or tampering with door handles.

Anyone with information on the King’s Grant thefts is asked to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at (704) 732-9050.
