Thomasville --  Investigators are following leads in a string of car break-ins in Thomas County. The thieves targeted neighborhoods in the Summer Hill Road area.

Tuesday morning they broke into six cars, and stole purses, and a laptop computer and other items.  Some cars were unlocked, with others, thieves broke windows to get inside.  

"Locked, unlocked.  We find that it doesn't make a lot of difference but the important thing is in either event, don't leave valuable things in your vehicles," said Investigator Bob Brettel of the Thomas County Sheriff's Office. 

Another tip:  Investigators say leaving outside lights on throughout the night might be enough to discourage criminals from trying anything.
