Warning to Community
To those who haven’t lost any items to theft yet beware.
There seems to be a group of people who are going around the St. Stephen, Alvin and Jamestown areas stealing golf carts, four-wheelers and any type of metal from citizens.
Beware of any strange trucks, especially delivery trucks or people not normally in your neighborhood riding around.
