He provided a run down of thefts they are currently aware of over the last week. They include two vehicles being broken into in Rosewood Estates on Oct. 9, where a cell phone charger and loose change were stolent, and a theft from a vehicle at Parkwood Drive on Oct. 13, where keys and a camera were stolen.
