Chesterfield crime spree prompts police warning

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Chesterfield Police have issued a warning to neighbors after thieves broke into around 20 unlocked vehicles parked in and around the Michaux Creek subdivision this week.

Items taken from the car include money, computers, jewelry, and even guns. In one instance, police said, an entire car was stolen because someone left their keys inside the unlocked vehicle.

“There is a sense of violation. I’ve had my car broken into before and you do lose a sense of security,” neighbor Greg Brown said.

Another neighbor – who asked not to be identified – noticed her husband’s truck and their garage were broken into Friday morning.

She immediately texted other neighbors with a warning.

“It raised everybody’s awareness level,” neighbor Mark Beck said. “But I am very surprised about that happening here. Need to lock your cars in your driveway.”

In a message posted on the department’s Facebook page, Chesterfield Police offered
