GIBSONVILLE, N.C. — Gibsonville Police are warning homeowners to keep their car doors locked.
In the past three weeks, thieves have broken into 23 cars in the Stone Ridge neighborhood.
For the most part, thieves aren’t making off with much — some loose change or small items — but Carri Lowery had much more stolen.
“Sunglasses, money, my wallet, all my credit cards, my whole purse,” said Carri Lowery, who lives in Gibsonville, of items stolen.
Gibsonville Police say they’ve put out warnings and even posted reminders on their Facebook page.
“Please lock your automobile. In just about every one of those cases there is a common denominator, the vehicle is unlocked,” said Gibsonville Police Chief Ron Parrish.
Homeowners have had enough and they want this to stop.
“It’s kind of pitiful really that somebody would walk up to somebody’s car in their yard and have the nerve to go through it and get what they want and walk away,” said Lowery.
Gibsonville police have said they are patrolling the neighborhood more often.
