VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A round of car break-ins happened early Monday morning in the Indian Lakes area of Virginia Beach.
Virginia Beach police say they are investigating several larceny from vehicles cases on Settlers Park Drive, as well as a stolen vehicle on Westhaven Crescent.
“It made me very uncomfortable that someone was able to come that close to violating my personal space,” said Ciara Freeman.
Freeman is the resident whose 2010 Honda Accord was stolen right out of her driveway. Freeman said several surveillance cameras on Westhaven Crescent picked the suspects up around 3 a.m. The footage has since been turned over to detectives.
“It shows two black males dressed in jeans and hooded shirts,” said Freeman. “They appear to be going from car to car, trying to get into the cars.”
Freeman said she now realizes she accidentally left her car unlocked and the valet key was in it. Her black Honda Accord has yet to be recovered, along with several important documents inside the vehicle. Police estimate the suspects got away with nearly $700 in her personal belongings, aside from the actual car.
“I want my car to be recovered,” said Freeman. “I would hope that someone would recognize my car, or hear of anything, or are familiar with these two particular guys.”
According to a police spokesperson, they are investigating four other larceny from vehicles cases one street down from Freeman on Settlers Park Drive. WAVY.com did find other cases where residents did not report them to police on Monday.
“Why are you tormenting other people who are minding their own business,” asked Heather Wolfe, whose neighbors were affected by the larcenies. “We didn’t do anything to you.”
Wolfe said the same type of crime happened about two months ago on Settlers Park Drive. She and her husband have since installed surveillance cameras.
Police say electronics, accessories and several bank cards were taken in the cases.
Freeman is asking the public to keep an eye out for her stolen vehicle. She said it is a black, 2010 4-door Honda Accord. She said there are a few white scratches on the front, passenger side bumper and there is a spare tire on the rear driver side. She said the license plate is: XBD 3884.
Police are asking you to call the Crimeline at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP if you know anything about the suspects.
