League City hit with rash of stolen cars
Four cars and trucks have been stolen in League City in just over a week: one from the YMCA, one from Molly's Pub and two from apartments.
League City Police Sgt. David Hausam said that many so close together is unusual. The thefts:
A black 2007 Ford F-550 pickup truck, license plate 36G-XT8, was stolen around 6:30 p.m. Sunday from an apartment complex in the 500 block of N. Wesley Drive.
A silver 2006 Chevrolet Silverado pickup, license plate 92M-YD7, was stolen between 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday at the Perry Family YMCA, 1700 W. League City Parkway.
A green 1998 Acura Integra, license plate B7X-975, was stolen between 12:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. May 25 from the Huntcliff Apartment complex, 2525 St. Christopher Ave.
A gold 2003 Honda Civic was reported stolen between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. May 24 from Molly's Pub, 1600 W. Main St. The vehicle was found about 7 a.m. crashed in the 900 block of Kings Gate Lane in Webster.
League City police are investigating the thefts, but have no suspects.
It could simply be these guys decided to hit League City," Hausam said. There is obviously a market for stolen vehicles."
While out driving, police encourage drivers to park their cars in visible spots. At home, they should park in their garages or in areas with surveillance cameras.
Other than diligence by the owner, this is one of things that is hard to stop 100 percent," Hausam said. Obviously if you do things that make it more difficult, you are less likely to be a target. But at any rate if somebody wants your vehicle bad enough, it's very difficult to keep them from getting it."
