Officers have taken 3 vehicle burglary reports at Port Royal Park and Jerry Erwin Park (Kedron Rd). Some vehicles had damage due to forced entry. Based upon what was taken and the locations, it appears the Felony Lane Gang (FLG) might be responsible.
The FLG group utilizes rental vehicles with heavily-tinted windows to conduct surveillance in parking lots and steal identification documents (IDs), credit cards, and checkbooks from unattended vehicles. The majority of these burglaries occur at gyms, fitness centers, daycare facilities, and recreation areas where women would be more likely to leave their purses in their vehicles. FLG members then utilize the stolen checks and IDs to withdraw large sums of money at multiple banks before the victims have the opportunity to close their accounts.
