(KSL News) -- Lock your car doors and don't keep valuables plain sight. That's the message Midvale police are sending out today after more than half a dozen cars were vandalized overnight.
More than a half dozen cars in one apartment complex had their windows smashed, or their doors and trunks pried open. Then thieves grabbed purses and wallets, CD's and stereos, registration papers, even ashtrays out of the cars. One student had his notebooks stolen.
Today, neighbors are assessing the damage.
Colleen Fici, Resident: "I think a lot of it has brought us closer together to keep an eye on each other's property. A lot of us are scared, you know, that this might happen again."
Midvale police took fingerprints and they've recovered some of the property stolen. To one neighbor, it was the most valuable piece of property.
The student's schoolwork was found dumped outside a nearby restaurant. He's very relieved because his final exams are just two weeks away.
