"My glove box was ripped out, I mean it looked just like a tornado. Probably $800 to $1,000 altogether, and that's not including the gun that's been in our family for years", says Callie Petty, burglary victim.
Abilene Police are busy taking finger prints and connecting the dots as to who could have committed the crime. But Callie's home at Indian Run Apartments is only one stop on the agenda today.
"There's at least five victims at this time, and that number may change. And it looks like no signs of forced entry", explains George Spindler, Abilene Police Department.
Included in the string of car burglaries, a neighboring complex, The Reserve. Management tells us it's a rarity, but crimes like this can happen in the area, and often because of a false sense of security.
"Parking in these highly populated areas, people feel a sense of safety that they are surrounded by other cars", says Jake Laudermilk, The Reserve.
Callie tells us her car was locked and her alarm still didn't go off. Others however, didn't take the same precautions.
Having lost several personal items and even a family heirloom, Callie says she also lost her sense of safety.
Police believe whoever was responsible for Callie's break-in was most likely behind the handful of other local car burglaries as well; not targeting any specific items or person, but rather, randomly pilfering.
Abilene Police would like to remind everyone to lock your car doors and remove all valuables, even if you are only leaving your vehicle for a short time.
