BPS recovers stolen property

Bainbridge Public Safety investigators recently recovered a number of items stolen from vehicles at a Bainbridge apartment complex.

On Monday BPS officers responded to a number of entering auto reports that took place Sunday night at the Courts of Emerald apartment complex, located at 1530 Washington St.

Investigator James Dollar, Mark Esquivel and Chris Jordan responded and upon viewing apartment complex surveillance videos witnessed two males stealing items from approximately 10 vehicles, according to incident reports.

The investigators then began to canvas the surrounding area, speaking with residents and searching for stolen property, according to Esquivel.

They soon located numerous items in an abandoned vehicle located behind 1707 Stinson St. Items recovered included five CD players, a DVD player, a purse, clothing and car speaker stolen from a residence on Potter Street.

Esquivel said two suspects were questioned regarding the robbery, but no arrests have been made.

If you have any information pertaining to the robbery or the location of stolen property, please contact Investigator Esquivel at Bainbridge Public Safety, 229-515-0095.
