Sergeant S. Stroud stated, "This case was solved due to a proactive citizen calling the police after observing suspicious activity. As previously reported, car burglaries are very hard crimes to solve for law enforcement agencies without the help of the community. The Wilson Police Department continues to encourage citizens to lock their car doors, remove valuables each night, and report all suspicious activity. Working together we can make our community safer.”
