Hogansville Police Investigating Burglary Incidents

Hogansville Police are looking into three incidents that occurred over the weekend that appear to be related.

On Friday morning, starting at 7:30 a.m., three separate incidents occurred in Hogansville and police are alerting the community to look out for a suspicious vehicle believed to be involved. All three incidents occurred during a three-and-a-half hour window and the same suspect appears to have perpetrated the crimes.

The first incident reported was for suspicious activity on Foot Log Lane. A resident reported someone attempted to get in the front and rear door of their residence, but he was spotted before anything was taken. A white vehicle was reported leaving the area after the incident.

Police believe a pair of burglaries reported afterwards was also related to the same suspect.

A resident at the Park Meadows Apartments on East Boyd Road reported a burglary at their residence where undisclosed electronics were stolen.

Another Residential Burglary occurred on Dusty Road, where the resident reported a burglary at their home. Undisclosed electronics were also stolen during this incident.

Using security video, police were able to capture still photos of the white suspect vehicle, which they believe to be a late 90s model Ford Mustang.

Hogansville Police Chief Brian Harr says they have not yet identified the vehicle, but they have recently developed some strong leads that may help resolve this case. Police note that these incidents occurred during daytime hours at residential properties, so be on the lookout for suspicious activity and report it as soon as possible.
