ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Residents in a Dougherty County mobile home park are on high alert after several of vehicles were broken into, leaving behind shattered glass and a lot of questions.  

Folks who live in the Suburban mobile home park are shocked that this happened in their quiet neighborhood.   And police are hoping they can help them track down who did this.     

Corporal James Adams with the Dougherty County Police Department spent Tuesday morning alerting residents in the Suburban mobile home park.   Adams says five vehicles were broken into sometime Sunday night into Monday morning.

The crook or crooks smashed the windows and rummaged around, but nothing was taken. "Just trying to get some information from the citizens here that live in this mobile home park to see if I can't get some leads to who might be the one that's doing all this damage out here."    

While the vandal or vandals didn't steal anything, they left a mess for residents who now have to replace their car windows.    

Long-time residents are shocked to have this type of crime happen in what they call a peaceful neighborhood. "Yeah I'm surprised, I really am. I wish they'd quit. I can't afford to buy window glass," said Ricky Howell. "This is my first time hearing about it, the break ins. It used to be quiet," said Tanisha Jones.    

Corporal Adams is also reminding residents to lock their cars, take valuables out of their vehicles and also document important or expensive items. "Make, model, serial number, take a photo of it. Just put that stuff away and set it aside, put it in your safe deposit box, put it in your home security box, separate from your vehicle so that way you'll have some kind of record of it."    

Authorities don't have any suspects at this time.   But police are hoping watchful neighbors can help them solve this case. If you have any information about the vehicle break-ins call the Dougherty County Police Department at 430-6600.
