Bloomingdale police are investigating several cases of apparent car break-ins in which the contents of glove compartments and center consoles were "strewn about" cars, some items stolen, according to police.
Cash, jewelry, electronics and paperwork were among the items reported on Sunday and Monday to be stolen from cars, Ptl. Dan Fletcher said. Police believe the apparent thefts happened either late Saturday evening or early Sunday morning.
Fletcher said residents from the following roads reported a person or persons had entered their vehicles (see map): Hilltop Terrace, Oak Street, Hillcrest Drive, Hillside Drive, Knolls Road, Charles Street and Rafkind Road.
"It appears as though there was no sign of forced entry and that all the vehicles may have been unlocked," Fletcher said in a report.
Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to contact the Bloomingdale Police Department at 973-838-0158.
