Recent car break-ins in Dawson County subdivisions have Sheriff Billy Carlisle advising residents to take extra precautions against thefts this holiday season. According to Carlisle, the sheriff's office received an increase in break-ins and thefts of cars at the beginning of December, particularly in the Biscayne and Chestatee on Lanier subdivisions. Carlisle said that people are prone to leaving items in their cars when they are at home, as well as not locking their trunks or car doors.
