The Oklahoma City Police Department said over 40 cars were broken into at a Yukon apartment complex.
The string of car break-ins happened late Monday night and early Tuesday morning at The Park at WestPointe apartments.
Shards of glass can still be seen all across the complex as residents are in disbelief.
“It is super violating,” said Kayla Broomfield, whose vehicle was broken into Monday night. “I have two small kids, a 2-year-old and 1-year-old. We live on the first floor so for me it was like okay, what’s next? Are they hyping up on something and they are going to come to the front door or our windows?”
Broomfield said since moving into the complex in November 2020, her and her husband’s vehicles have been broken into six different times.
The latest damage done will cost the Broomfield family $650, including cleaning up blood.
According to police reports, thieves didn’t leave the complex empty handed. Victims reported stolen tools, a gun and other items from their vehicles.
“There are some people who right now can’t even afford to fix their window,” said William Suires, a resident. “God forbid if it rains, that is more money out of their pockets because it is going to further damage their vehicles.”
As clean up and repairs continue, resident’s hope their complex and others nearby will step up security patrols and do more to prevent another string of 45-vehicle break-ins from happening.
“I want to be able to try and be looking on okay, ‘Is there a reason?’ But that doesn’t justify what happened. I still want them to get caught and have the consequences.”
It’s unclear if any arrests have been made.
Complex management is asking residents to stay vigilant.
