Thieves hit vehicles around Clear Lake
There's been a string of vehicle burglaries around Clear Lake in the past week.
A Pearland resident reported that her car was broken into Jan. 12 while she was dropping her child off at a Friendswood daycare center in the 200 block of Friendswood Drive.
The window was smashed on her pickup, and her purse was stolen. Within 20 minutes, her credit card was used a gas station on Scarsdale.
Most of the week's other car burglaries happened in League City. According to League City police:
A diamond ring was stolen from a vehicle in the 400 block of Coryell St.
A DVD player with two television screens, a TomTom GPS system, and coins were stolen from a vehicle in the 2800 block of Seastrand Lane.
A purse containing a wallet, cash and credit cards was stolen from a vehicle in the 1200 Egret Bay Boulevard.
A credit card and cash were stolen from an unlocked car in the 400 block of Scarlet Sage Drive. The credit card was used fraudulently in League City.
A vehicle was broken into in the 2300 block of Marina Bay Drive West, but nothing was stolen.
An unlocked Ford F-150 was burglarized and a Dodge Durango was stolen out of the driveway in the 100 block of Warm Spring Lane.
A vehicle was burglarized by forcing the driver-side door lock open in the 1800 block of Sherwood Forest Circle. Tools, sunglasses and clothing were taken.
Two vehicles were burglarized in the 200 block of Calypso Lane.
League City Police Sgt. John Jordan said the string of car burglaries is pretty typical.
Usually what happens it'll be one person or a group of people and they'll just hit neighborhood after neighborhood after neighborhood," Jordan said. They take what they can get and then they'll disappear for three or four weeks and come back unless, obviously, we can make an arrest and then that shuts that crew down until the next one picks up."
