Three U-Hauls stolen in Macon within the last year

According to the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, the thefts happen to people moving from out of state.

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)— Within the last year, three U-Hauls have been swiped from hotel parking lots in Macon.

According to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, the thefts happen to people moving from out of state.

Investigator Dennis Terry says he’s unsure if the crimes are connected at this point. He says when they recover the U-Hauls, they’re emptied out and it looks like the trucks were hot wired.

We asked what his recommendations are for people traveling with U-Hauls.

“When they go to these hotels they should park in a lighted area and try to park their U-Haul where they see video surveillance,” said Investigator Terry.

He says you could put a tracking device on the U-Haul or a club on the steering wheel.

If you have any information about any suspects in the stolen U-Haul cases, call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68-CRIME.
