ORLANDO, Fla. – Authorities are investigating after dozens of vehicles were burglarized in at least four different places in Orange County, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the overnight burglaries were reported Wednesday around 5 a.m.

According to the Sheriff's Office, more than 60 vehicles were burglarized at the following locations:

Amazon warehouse -- 12340 Boggy Creek Road
SunRail train station -- 110 Fairway Woods Boulevard
UPS warehouse -- 8901 Atlantic Avenue

Deputies said vehicles at the UPS warehouse have been broken into several times recently. The series of break-ins is being investigated, officials said. Details on that investigation have not been released.

A victim at the UPS warehouse told News 6 it was the fourth time their vehicle had been burglarized at that location.

The victim said stolen items include guns, IDs, credit cards, electronics and even a man's green card.

A woman whose vehicle was burglarized at the SunRail station said she used to park her vehicle at the Sand Lake SunRail location but moved to the Fairway Woods Boulevard location after her vehicle was broken into at the other location. She said she believes at least four or five other vehicles were burglarized overnight Tuesday at the Fairway Woods location.

No other details were immediately available.

The Florida Department of Transportation released a statement about the burglaries at the SunRail station.

We are sorry to hear about the recent incidents, including at one of the SunRail parking lots. As you would at any public parking lot or shopping area, always lock your vehicle and properly secure your valuables, preferably out of sight. If you see suspicious activity in the parking area, on the platform, or anywhere in the immediate vicinity of the station, please say something to someone.

There are several options. You may contact the ambassador on the station platforms. If an ambassador is not available, you may also contact customer service at 1-855-RAIL-411 (724-5411), Mon-Fri, 5:30 a.m. 9:30 p.m. You may contact law enforcement by calling 9-1-1—there also are call boxes on the platform for that purpose. The one with the blue light puts you in contact, immediately, with law enforcement. Again, see something, say something.

The Florida Department of Transportation does not assume responsibility for damage to, or loss of, property that may occur in these lots at any time. Persons leaving their vehicles in SunRail parking lots do so at their own risk.

On a final note, jurisdiction of these parking lots falls under our local funding partners. The specific local partner and local law enforcement for this area might have further insights.
