Man Leaves Window Cracked, Thief Seizes Opportunity

A man who told police he left his window open “just a little” ends up a crime victim.

Cracking a window may help fight the heat, but it is not much use in fighting crime.

A Dacula man locked his truck doors, but left his window cracked “just a little” while he visited  on June 29. When he returned to his vehicle, he discovered his Kenwood radio was missing. According to the police report, the dashboard had been taken apart and several pieces were missing.

The stolen radio was valued at $300 and the cost to repair the damage was estimated to be $150.

The case is listed as active.
