Sheriff NC badge

Residents along Seven Creeks Highway in Nakina are being reminded to lock their cars and keep an eye out for suspicious persons.
The sheriff’s office and Bug Hill Concerned Citizens Facebook group reported that someone broke into several vehicles Tuesday night. It was the third night in a row for vehicle break-ins in the area, with the thief not even being deterred by Hurricane Isaias.
The suspect or suspects are going from house to house in the early morning hours, taking change, cash and anything else they can find in vehicles. At least one handgun has been stolen by the car burglary.
Residents are asked to call 911 to report any suspicious activity to the Columbus County Sheriff Office.
