Adams noted that earlier the Sheriff’s Department had received a call about a vehicle registered to Jewell stuck at the corner of Sycamore and Winberry Place.

Later that afternoon, Adams spoke with other residents on Sycarmore Lane, who said that radar detectors valued at $100 each were missing from two vehicles. A neighbor provided deputies with video footage.
