Neighbors in The Island subdivsion in Lexington say they are a bit uneasy after waking up to numerous break-ins Sunday morning.

The plastic around the car of Hunter Storrow is a clear sign she was one of the victims.

"Officer Thurman drove by and told us we were one of many homes where cars had been ransacked and evidently there was one home actually burglarized", said Storrow.

The owner of that burglarized home says she is uncomfortable after learning thieves broke into her home while she slept.

Police say they have not made any arrests but are looking into possible leads.

Neighbors say they hope surveillance cameras at the entrance to the neighborhood will provide some leads to the suspects.

    Well, these days thieves know how to disarm alarms, break codes, turn off motion sensors. The best thing is to get a couple of K-9s and let them roam around the yard. Take a BITE out of crime. Know what I mean?

    That is scary. Put an alarm system in your homes, if it goes off, it will at least alert you to the fact that someone is either in your home, or coming into your home. Sad things are the way they are now days.
