Adams Farm area hit hard by holiday burglaries

GREENSBORO, N.C. — More than 30 homes were broken into in the last week; many of which while the homeowners were out of town for the July 4th holiday.

Since Saturday, there have been 31 burglaries with five of them in the Adams Farm community.

Officer E.Y. Watkins with Greensboro police said the summer vacation months are a time thieves target homeowners who may be out of town.

“A lot of the point of entries have been the rear entry of the house in the window,” Watkins said.

Of the five Adams Farm burglaries along Top Ridge Court, Watercrest Drive and Oleader Point, televisions were the most common item stolen.

Watkins believes the burglaries are related and said police are looking at a group of suspects they believe are between the ages of 16 and 21.
