To date, Police have not gotten a good description of the suspect(s). The thieves committing these crimes are breaking into vehicles after seeing something of value in plain sight in the car. Residents should know that DPD has increases patrols in these areas, But, one of the easiest ways for you NOT to become a victim is lock your vehicle, and do not leave any valuables in your cars. These things include backpacks, wallets, purses, computers, ipads, radar detectors, garage door openers, GPS devices, etc. In short, any item that could be pawned or sold on the street.
