Rash of break-ins reported in Germantown

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. -- Germantown Police Officers say along this quiet stretch of Surrey Lane lies a mystery.

"I don`t know who they are. I don`t know how no one saw them. Except it had to be 3 or 4 in the morning."

Car burglars smashed car windows, stole cash, and even took garage openers to gain access to homes. Germantown Police are trying to figure out who is behind the crimes.

"They got in the glove compartment and took about $150 cash and just left stuff scattered," said one resident.

"Down the street, there someone had broken into a car and scattered stuff so I don`t know. It`s scary."

We talked to a woman who didn't want to show her face but said this was no the first time her family`s home has been targeted. On Saturday, it was her son-in-law's BMW that was burglarized, but before that it was their home.

"About a year and a half ago, someone broke the window out while they were at work and took their jewelry box."

Homeowner`s told WREG this type of crime isn`t the norm and the victim`s of this past weekend`s car burglaries want to make sure all neighbors know what's going on.
