Confederate Park neighborhood hit with car break-ins

Police have stepped up nighttime patrol around North Confederate Avenue and Pickens Street in Rock Hill after at least seven vehicles were broken into this week, officials say.

The car break-ins happened overnight on Sunday. The Rock Hill Police Department estimates more than $2,000 was lost by victims – either from items stolen from vehicles or damage caused during the break-ins.

Police reports show that various items were taken from the cars including a $300 shotgun, necklace, GPS system, medicine, and a man’s wallet. Some vehicles were rummaged through but nothing was stolen, the reports state.

Several cars in the Confederate Park area had broken windows. One truck had a steering column broken.

Rock Hill officers say some of the car’s were left unlocked, making it easy for the suspect or suspects to steal.

No arrests have been made.
