Neighbors in Conway community report car break-ins

Neighbors say group has been spotted several times this week

ORLANDO, Fla. – Neighbors in the Conway community said a group of kids has been breaking into cars all week.

"Every night, five nights this week," one neighbor said.

Surveillance video from overnight shows a guy in a hoodie walking up to a home on Leola Lane. He tugs on the vehicle's passenger door, then goes around the back and tries to get away with a bike.

"We came out this morning and the truck door was open and a bike was moved. There's four kids out, there's two walking and two on bikes," he added.

A close look at the video shows three more people keeping watch nearby. One night earlier, the same neighbor caught an image of a man in between his cars, again opening his car doors.

"Now they're breaking into cars. Next week they're breaking into your house, you know, when you're not here," he said.

Shawnna Krieger and her husband live across the street and said they caught the same guy on camera in their driveway, creeping around their car.

"I'm not very happy about it at all. They went all the way around my car and tugged on all the doors, and me and the kids are inside," Krieger said.

Neighbors said the group has been spotted several times this week, breaking into cars on multiple streets. People in the community are so upset they took to Facebook to warn others.

One woman posted that they stole her husband's wallet, and another said the alarm went off just in time.

"I don't know what kid would want to do that. It's an invasion of privacy," Krieger said.

"I don't think they care about getting caught, though, because the lights kick on and they keep going, they keep doing it," added another neighbor.

Anyone who recognizes the guys in the video or has any information that can help this investigation is asked to call police.
