ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The President of a Northwest Albany neighborhood watch says crooks broke into almost a dozen cars there since Friday.

Albany Police say car break-ins are skyrocketing across town.

Police investigated two entering auto reports in the Doublegate Neighborhood Watch area this morning.

In most cases thieves simply opened unlocked doors at night and took guns and electronic items.

Neighborhood watch President Dr. Charles Gillespie suspects an organized gang.

Doublegate Neighborhood Watch President Dr. Charles Gillespie said "I can't imagine looking at our big wide area and just happen up on six vehicles that are open and valuables inside. I think it's somewhat planned."

Gillespie and Police are telling people to keep their car doors locked.
