A string of car break-ins
in one Toledo neighborhood has everyone on edge.
It's happening in the
Willys Parkway area near Berdan.
Neighbors say thieves are
getting bolder with how they're breaking into cars. Instead of hitting cars parked on the street,
they're creeping closer to homes, and stealing from right under people's noses,
sometimes even busting down doors to get in the garage.
Residents say cars are
being broken into repeatedly in this neighborhood. Kyle Barney, who lives there, says his house
was the most recent casualty. A laptop
was stolen out of the backseat of his dad's care.
"(They) kicked into our
garage to get in," Barney said. "It's
troubling how much they think they can get away with now."
Barney is especially
troubled by thieves, because this isn't the first time he's been a victim.
"My car's been broken into
five or six times," he says.
padlocks and even motion detectors lights to keep the bad guys out, but admits
at the end of the day, there's not much else he can do.
"We'll just leave the car
unlocked, they're still going to steal the stuff but at least we won't have to
pay to get new windows and all that stuff," he jokes.
Toledo Police say they've
increased patrols in the area, and they've been on the lookout in unmarked cars
for any suspicious activity.
