Police investigate car break-ins at Little League game


Thick shards of glass serve as a gripping reminder of what happened at the baseball field inside Harry Daniel Park just after 7 p.m. Saturday.

Victims, afraid to disclose their identity, said while they were watching their children's Little League game, thieves were on the prowl.

"We went to go check, and my wife went and she found that her window was bashed in," said one victim.

Victims said their cars were parked, and when they came out of the baseball field they found the cars' back windows smashed, their purses missing from inside.

"It's absolutely terrifying, especially for the kids," said one of the victims. "People bring kids to the public park to be active, and with crime going on around them, it is not good."

Police said three cars were broken into, and they believe there could possibly be more victims. They said purses and cell phones were stolen from the cars. Police don't have descriptions of the suspects, however.

One victim said his family is on edge after personal information belonging to his wife was stolen from their car.

"They took her personal ID, her drivers license, a lot of information, her credit cards," the victim said. "Now we have to live in fear and wonder if these people are going to come to our house and try to take anything."
