The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to stem a recent wave of battery thefts.

Authorities said there has been an increasing number of reports of battery thefts from vehicles, oil well sites, heavy machinery and electric driveway gates across the county.

Residents are being urged to beware of suspicious activity, such as people stopping in driveways for no apparent reason or near vehicles that appear to be disabled, working on equipment along roads or at construction sites at odd times of the day or otherwise being out of place.

Anyone with information about the recent thefts is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 361-4900 or Crime Stoppers at 775-8477.

Suspicious activity can be reported by calling 361-3888.
