The Dare County Sheriff’s Office is searching for suspects in a series of vehicle break-ins at Camp Hatteras RV and KOA RV Resorts in Rodanthe.

The break-ins began on Aug. 31 and the thieves have stolen firearms, money, wallets, purses and other items from these unlocked vehicles, the Dare County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

“They have taken from those who have worked hard to take a vacation here in the Outer Banks. Money that supports our locals in their businesses. The firearms taken will most likely end up in the hands of those who want to use them for illicit purposes,” the release said.
