Stephenville Police Chief Jason King is warning residents about a string of vehicle burglaries - 17 to be exact - that happened Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning in the Lakewood Estates area.

“As far as we can tell, all these vehicles were left unlocked,” King said. “There was a variance of items taken from these vehicles, everything from small items to phones, tablets and money.”

Some of the cars sustained damage to the interior, King said.

Investigators are reviewing security footage from homes in the area, hoping to identify the suspect(s).

“We are asking homeowners who may have additional security footage or any other information to contact us,” King said. “And residents need to keep their vehicles locked and not leave valuables inside.”

Anyone with information should call the SPD at 918-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 965-CASH.
