The day before just before 5 a.m., a stolen Plymouth Voyager van was used to back into a Radio Shack on North Roxboro Road. Several items were taken and at least two men were involved. The stolen vehicle was found a short time later on Meriwether Drive.

Another stolen vechile, this time a Dodge van, was used to drive through the front entrance of Affordable Jewelry and Pawn on Hillsborough Road last Wednesday. Jewelry and electronic items were stolen from the business. Officers found the stolen van a short time later on Bridgefield Place.
