Thieves burglarize 33 vehicles in Copperas Cove in roughly two weeks

Police are reminding drivers to lock their doors.

In just a little more than two weeks, there have been 33 vehicle burglaries reported to the Copperas Cove Police Department. Between June 1 and June 16, the department said roughly $6,000 in property was reported stolen.

The most recent burglaries involved unlocked vehicles in Copperas Cove subdivisions.

"The Copperas Cove Police Department strongly encourages citizens to be vigilant about locking their vehicles when left unattended, even for short periods of time," Police Sgt. Martin Ruiz said in a press release. "Car thieves regularly search for vehicles in private driveways, parking lots, and on city streets trying door handles to see if they are unlocked. Do not leave valuables in vehicles in plain sight as this will entice them further."

If you see suspicious people around your neighborhood, please call 911.
