JONESBORO, Ark. – Don’t leave anything valuable in your vehicle overnight or you might wake up to find it stolen the next day.

Over the Dec. 1 weekend in Jonesboro, a large number of vehicle break-ins were reported. Not all of the reports were available, which is why we don’t have the times of all the incidents alleged. All of these reports were made with police over the three day period.

Starting with the earliest, here is a list of all of the break-ins reported to Jonesboro Police Department as of Monday morning.

  1. 100-block of Melrose Street, vehicle broken into and property stolen
  2. 4700-block of Morton Drive, vehicle entered and property stolen sometime between 8 AM and 8 PM on November 30.

  10. 100-block of Holmes Road, vehicle entered
