Two cars stolen, several others broken into in Cordova

CORDOVA, Tenn. -- The Shelby County Sheriff's Office is investigating a string of car thefts and burglaries in Cordova.

According to the sheriff's office, two cars were stolen and several others were broken into on Saturday night.

All the thefts and break-ins happened between the 1400-1500 block of North and South Goodlett Grove Cove.

Kathy Reynolds thankfully wasn't hit. Her car was locked, but she feels bad for her neighbors.

"I just think it's opportunity, and I think it's sad and ridiculous when people go and take other peoples' stuff when they've worked hard to get it," she said.

WREG spoke to a man who says one of the stolen vehicles belongs to his wife. He says he heard a noise around 4:30 a.m., looked out the window and saw someone getting into the car.

"The thief was already breaking into the vehicle, and by the time I got out the door, he was gone. I was trying to think how fast I could get out here and get my hands on this guy. But he was already gone," he said.

Surveillance video shows one potential suspect who appears to be casing vehicles. He can be seen tugging a door handle before realizing it's locked and moving on.

The sheriff's office says miscellaneous items were stolen. No weapons were reported stolen. Authorities believe that the suspect(s) entered the vehicles through unlocked car doors.

Anyone with information can call the sheriff's office at (901)-222-5600.
