FAIRFIELD TWP., Ohio - At least half a dozen Fairfield Heights residents woke up to find things missing or disheveled in their cars Monday.
Items stolen range from high-priced possessions like a laptop and a GPS to little things like spare change.
Residents of the area say this is the second time in two months they have had things stolen from their cars while sleeping, and they want police to find whoever did this and stop them.
"At first you're kind of dumbfounded and after that, aggression pretty soon kicks in and you just become extremely irate that someone would have the nerve to break into your belongings," said area resident Ted Killian.
Fairfield Heights resident Randy Leonard says he doesn't want to have to worry about something like this.
"I shouldn't have to be on my guard all the time, looking after all my doors," said Leonard. "I just wanted to maybe go inside the house for maybe 25 minutes and leave my door unlocked. I shouldn't have to worry about all that."
Fairfield Township police do stress that drivers should always lock their car overnight, despite how trusting they may be of neighbors.
Police also say to keep the valuables inside, and hide any wires that may look like they are connected to valuable items.
If you have any break-ins to report, you're asked to call Fairfield Township police at 513-887-4406.
