LINCOLN, Neb. At least 10 vehicles last night in a couple neighborhoods in northeast Lincoln were burglarized. Some people even lost a few items in their cars.

Another round of multiple car break-in's have occurred in northeast Lincoln. I visited with a family that was affected. Manuel Cruz says he and family woke up this morning near 41st and Cornhusker and discovered not one. But two of their cars had been broken into.

"We all looked out at what happened and yeah our faces are like.. And it was all unexpected." Said Manuel Cruz, brother of car break-in victim

Two windows on the right side of their gray Nissan were shattered and their white Pathfinder door was opened. Both cars were parked in their drive way. Fortunately not much was stolen other than a little money, a few receipts and posters from school. When they discovered this they called the police.

"They said that the robbers stole and broke in to 15 cars on this street and they're trying to find all the robbers around here." Cruz said

Cruz says his family was told the police will be checking around their street. Other spots saw break-ins around the area of Adams to Cornhusker Street from 41st to 48th street. Several of these cars were left unlocked.

"This case serves as an excellent reminder to people to lock your vehicles, bring items inside of any value." Said Officer Katie Flood, Public Information Officer with the LPD

Some residents are installing cameras at their places. This could at least help identify the perpetrators. Manuel says his family may do that.

"I just want to say to be careful and put some cameras on you're house. Try to be sneaky and be careful." Cruz said

Rates of larceny from vehicles have been high in 2016. There were over 250 reports alone in September. Again you should always lock your vehicles and bring all important items inside. And, be sure to report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
