Burglary Arrests
Sunday, 30 January 2011

January 31--  Vidalia police hope two arrests will help them solve a rash of residential burglaries in the city.

The suspected burglars are identified as 24-year-old James Richard Law and 20-year-old Taneka Warren, both of 209 Dexter Street in Vidalia.  Police Chief Frank Waits says he expects more arrests.

Meanwhile, police are looking for leads in the latest breakin at Two Guys Beverage and Tobacco.  Last week's breakin was the third in eight months at the store.

There was a significant increase in burglaries in Vidalia in 2010.  Police records show 199 last year, an increase of 44 over 2009.  Increases were also reflected in rapes, aggravated assaults and DUI's.  

There were some reductions in some categories.  There were 67 fewer cases of family violence and less cases of assault and battery and armed robbery.
