High Country Crime Stoppers and Boone Police seek the public’s assistance in solving the following crime:

 

On Saturday, October 27, 2018, at approximately 3:00 AM, two unknown subjects entered numerous vehicles in the parking lot of Bavarian Village – 314 Meadowview Drive – and took cash.  Surveillance footage is attached. Video link: https://youtu.be/2knAssN8CbA

 

Some important tips to reduce or prevent thefts from vehicles:

 

  • Always lock your vehicle.

 

  • Don’t leave valuables in view. This not only means obvious things like wallets, purses, cameras, leather jackets, CD players, etc., but any bags or backpacks that might appear to hold them. If you must leave valuables in the car, use the trunk. If you don’t have a trunk, try under the seat or cover the items with a floor mat or blanket. At least get it out of open view.

 

  • Don’t leave your ID or credit cards in the vehicle. Car break-ins are a gold mine for identity theft.

 

Anyone with information on this crime or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 828-268-6959 / 828-737-0125 or the Boone Police Department at 828-268-6900.  You may also submit a Crime Stoppers Tip via our website at https://www.tipsubmit.com/webtips.aspx?AgencyID=1251 or Text “NCTIP plus your tip” to 274637 (CRIMES).  All information will be kept confidential.

 

High Country Crime Stoppers pays rewards for information, which leads to arrests; recovery of stolen property; seizure of drugs and the location of wanted persons.

 

High Country Crime Stoppers is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization operated by a volunteer community board of directors serving Avery and Watauga Counties. High Country Crime Stoppers encourages the reporting of information or leads which can assist law enforcement with solving crimes. Its goal is to help in the fight against crime, but it is not part of the local police departments or sheriff’s offices. Each County has a law enforcement coordinator who participates as an advisor to the board but is a non-voting member. The citizen’s board is responsible for operations of the program, fund raising, public relations, and approval of rewards.
