Car burglars go on a spree in League City
League City police are investigating a rash of car burglaries this week:
Three vehicles were burglarized in the 400 block of Oaklawn Street between Wednesday at 5 p.m. and Thursday at 10:30 a.m.
Music CDs and loose change were stolen from an unlocked Pontiac G6; a Glock 19 handgun and loose change were stolen from an unlocked Land Rover; and music CDs and loose change were stolen from unlocked Ford F150.
Four other vehicles were burglarized in 300 block of Edgewood Street between Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. and Thursday at 8:27 a.m.
A wallet, GPS unit and iPod were taken from one unlocked vehicle, and a DVD and CD player were stolen from an unlocked Ford Expedition. Two more cars were broken into but nothing taken.
Police do not have any suspects, but League City Police Lt. Bruce Whitten believes the Oaklawn and Edgewood thefts are related.
This all occurred over the same timeframe," Whitten said. It's a crime spree. I'm sure it's the same suspects who did them all."
Separately, there have been other hot spots for car burglaries as well:
On Thursday, three vehicles were burglarized in the 1700 block of W. League City Parkway between 6:51 p.m. and 8:46 p.m.
On Wednesday, four vehicles were burglarized along the Gulf Freeway.
There's also been a string of unsolved car burglaries in South Shore Harbour recently. On Thursday night, the police department's Citizens Police Academy patrolled the neighborhood, and League City police sent out alerts to the subdivision's 400 to 500 residents using Connect-CTY.
The message from the League City police department:
Remove your valuables from your car and lock your stuff up," Whitten said.
Anyone with information about the burglaries are asked to call 281-338-4182 or 281-338-8210.
