Some Lincoln residents are keeping a wary eye out after a recent string of car break-ins at Holmes Lake. 

Lincoln Police say there were at least two reported Wednesday morning. 

Channel 8 Eyewitness News talked with one of the victims, who did not want to be identified. 

She says she was walking around the lake with two friends, and when she got back to her car a man approached them and told them someone had broken into her van. 

She found a large rock sitting her passenger side seat and the window completely shattered. 

The thief or thieves made off with two purses, cash, credit cards and cellphones. 

Police say the best way to avoid theft is to lock your vehicle and remove any valuables. 

The victim told Channel 8 Eyewitness News that she walks around Holmes Lake often, and never expected something like this to happen.
