In Baldwin County, the sheriff’s office has its hands full investigating car break-ins, home burglaries, ATV thefts, reports of stolen Christmas packages and reports of suspicious cars and suspicious people.

Most of the crimes are happening in rural communities like Stapleton, Whitehouse Fork and Crossroads.

The sheriff’s office has increased patrols in those communities. It’s part of the department’s Operation “Christmas Presence” initiative.
