JONESBORO, Ark. – As vehicle break-ins continue, one man was a victim in a major way, with thousands of dollars, credit cards and even a gun being stolen from his vehicle.
The crime happened overnight Tuesday/Wednesday morning at the 6200-block of Alan Drive in Jonesboro. Officer John Shipman met with the victim at his home, who had left checkbooks, credit cards, a Springfield XD 40, and an estimated $2,300 in the vehicle over night.
