CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – Chesterfield residents are outraged after a series of car break-ins in their usually quiet neighborhood. It happened at the crack of dawn Wednesday in the Massen Woods neighborhood.
“I came to my car this morning to leave to go to work and my car was ransacked,” said Keya, a resident.
Keya is one of several who woke up Wednesday morning to find someone had gone through their car.
“I was shocked, I’ve been here for ten years and never have I had anything like this happen to me,” she said.
Luckily, nothing valuable was taken from hers, but that wasn’t the case for her neighbors.
“My son had money taken from his car. The next block over actually had a vehicle stolen,” said Keya.
“I woke up this morning, and I realized my car door was open. And I saw that my armrest was up, I’m missing money. And also my glove compartment is open, and my sunglasses are missing,” said resident Kesha Bowser.
Both women called Chesterfield County Police to file a report.
“And he said I was the sixth person to report a break-in in my vehicle last night,” said Keya. “I just want to educate the public and let them know, ‘lock your car and don’t leave anything of value in your vehicle. And hopefully it’ll stop.'”
