South Hill Police investigate spate of thefts in Pettus Town neighborhood / April 28, 2021
The South Hill Police Department is continuing to investigate a spate of larcenies that took place over the past two weekends in the Pettus Town area of South Hill.

Police Chief Stuart Bowen said the department received multiple calls from Pettus Town residents of reporting thefts of various items from motor vehicles.

Bowen did not say what items were taken, only that at least one vehicle was also stolen from a home on Forest Lane. It was recovered within a few hours.

Bowen said in all, 10 vehicles were burglarized. There have been no reports that any of the area homes were entered.

The incidents began in the late hours of April 16 along Valley Road, Dogwood Lane, Forest Lane, Hollydale Lane and Charles Street. Two male subjects wearing face coverings were seen in the area during the time of the crimes. In each instance, the victims left their vehicle doors unlocked and items of value were taken, added Chief Bowen.

On April 23 a second vehicle was reported stolen from the area. It, too, was subsequently recovered.

Evidence was collected at each of the sites and the investigation is ongoing. Bowen asked residents of the area with outside security cameras to check the video to see if there is footage that could be useful in this investigation.

The South Hill Police Department encourages all residents of the town to lock their vehicles and remove any valuables as a precautionary measure.

If you observe suspicious activity, Bowen asks that resident dial 911 immediately. If anyone has any information about this or any crime, call the South Hill Police Department at (434) 447-3104.
