Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioPolice in Syracuse are dealing with a rash of car burglaries, and they suspect teenagers are committing the crimes.
Police think teens are involved because the thieves are stealing things like iPods and CDs, not credit cards or checks. Thirty cars have been burglarized in the last month.
At first the perps stole from unlocked cars, then they smashed windows to get into locked cars. This week they started stealing cars to drive to the next car to burglarize. Syracuse police say they've stepped up patrols, but residents need to watch out.
