Police are investigating a string of vehicle break-ins, all of which occurred one Sunday in August.
A total of 24 vehicles were broken into inside New Castle city limits within a five-hour period on Aug. 24. Police believe the crimes occurred between the hours of 1:30 and 6:30 a.m.
Henry County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Hudson is investigating the crimes, along with New Castle Police Chief John Porter. “Every vehicle was unlocked,” Hudson said, “and they just ransacked them.”
