Almost a dozen victims reported thefts and burglaries to P.G. police between Dec.14 and 20, with the bulk of them — nine — occurring the night of Dec. 15 or the morning of Dec. 16. Eight of those vehicles were unlocked, according to police, and the ninth had its convertible cover cut.
In addition, thieves stole computers, a phone system and keys from the Anton Inn on Dec. 3, someone took a television from a rental property on Dec. 18, and a suspect tried to break into a Lighthouse Avenue business Dec. 19 or 20 but failed to get through the window or the back door.
