Felony Lane Gang
March 29, 2021
Recently, Fayette County has become victim to an outside criminal syndicate responsible for vehicle break-ins and identity theft. A group sometimes referred to as the “felony lane gang” has a unique but well-orchestrated tactic in committing crime. They target dog parks, community parks, and workout facilities. Specifically, they use a covert procedure to break into your vehicle and steal personal items (typically purses) left behind. That information is then quickly passed along to someone else who often quickly travels to another community to not only use the stolen credit cards but also steals the victim’s identity. They are challenging to investigate because this group is often from another state and immediately moves out of the area to target another community. During a ten day stretch in March, ten citizens reported this type of theft had occurred to them. Never leave anything of value in your vehicle, even if hidden.
