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.

    What an ignorant comment!

    So according to you, all the GPD has to do to prevent crime is to stop writing tickets? Geez, if that is all they have to do to prevent crime, I’ll apply to be the next Police Chief and wipe crime out of Greensboro and in the process, become a hero!

    I repeat: What an ignorant comment….

      Brad, intelligence might not be your strong suit but if you wish to jump into a hole with another idiot, by all means. For anyone to think that by stopping their officers from handing out speeding tickets will PREVENT crime is nothing short of stupid and ignorant.

        Dick, I think his point is that they need to focus less on handing out speeding tickets and more on stopping the crime. I don’t think anyone is dumb enough to believe that not handing out speeding tickets is magically going to stop people from committing crime. The police just need to change their priorities.
