Police investigating string of burglaries in west Little Rock


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Police are investigating a string of burglaries in west Little Rock.

On Wednesday morning, police received nine reports of either cars or garages being broken into. Police believe the burglaries happened between the hours of 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. in three gated communities along Chenal Valley.

One homeowner whose truck was stolen was lucky enough to get it back.

"It's a big blessing, considering I had the truck for a week and a half and hadn't even registered it yet," said James Mikels of west Little Rock.

Hours after James Mikels discovered his brand new truck stolen from his driveway on Deauville Circle Wednesday morning, it was found.

"I called OnStar at 7:15 a.m., and by 8:30 a.m., they had my car shut down and located," said Mikels.
