Watch out if you hang out on Freedom Drive:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — One part of Charlotte is seeing a rise in the number of car break-ins. Several parking lots along Freedom Drive have been hit in the past couple of weeks.
In one night, police say there were 30 car break-ins in a parking lot used by patrons of the nightclub Scorpio.
Officers believe the reason for the spike is because of growth in the area — more stores and nightclubs.
Wait – I thought the lack of growth was what caused the break-ins… now it’s new growth?
