A recent rash of car break-ins in the Medlock area has spooked residents, according to the Clairmont Heights Civic Association.
From a post on the association's site:
Neighbor on Fox Hills: There were multiple car break ins on Fox Hills Drive and Harrington on Thursday night/Friday morning. According to the police officer who took the report, several of them, were locked and had security systems. It appears the thieves must have some sort of device to circumvent car security systems. Out of my car they took they took some change, 2 GPS devices and chargers. There was nothing else of value in the car but they ransacked the trunk as well.
Neighbor on Medlock: They ransacked my car even left my light on, back door open, an every console left opened, but I don't have any valuables in my car. So luckily nothing of value was taken. Happened between 230-7 am.
Facebook post: Car break ins at the 2700 block of Harrington. We called the police and filed our reports. Facebook post: There was another break in yesterday morning 3 doors down from us at 2318 Hunting Valley. 3 girl grad students had the rental broken into and their bedrooms trashed . They are missing all electronics. This is the 3rd break-in in the Hunting Valley area within the past 2 months.
Three other car break-ins and a burglary were also reported in the community between Aug. 25 and Aug. 27.
