Car break-ins

cause worry

Police are warning people not to leave valuable items in their vehicles after five automobile burglaries were reported at Pelican Bay and Aquatic Center, 1034 S Bryant Ave. “We believe it was targeted specifically, but we don’t know by whom just yet,” said Jennifer Monroe, Edmond police spokeswoman. “The dog park, along 33rd Street, is another hot spot to be targeted during this time of the year.” The auto burglaries occurred during Saturday afternoon, a busy time at the water park. The windows to the vehicles were broken. Purses, change and a leather coat were among the items stolen, police said. “The point is — don’t leave anything in the car,” Monroe said. “Take it inside the water park or the dog park with you or leave it at home.”
