Luxury Cars Stolen From Driveways

More Video...

An upscale Lexington neighborhood is on guard after nearly a dozen cars were stolen from outside the owner's homes. It happened early Saturday morning in the Glen Eagles subdivision off of Polo Club Blvd. Nearly every house on an entire block had their cars broken into, some were even stolen.

The thieves seemed to have expensive taste, stealing SUV's, BMW's and Lexus'. Most of the cars taken were later found heavily damaged and abandoned near Henry Clay Blvd.

Witnesses say they saw one stolen car being driven by three white teenagers, who looked barely old enough to drive.

Lexington police are investigating whether the string of car thefts this weekend are all connected.

    Let's just be thankful that nobody was hurt. Material things can always be replaced or repaired. I'm hoping everybody affected had insurance.

    I AM ONE OF THE HOME OWNERS WHO WAS VANDALIZED AGAINST LAST NIGHT. NOT TO TAKE UP FOR THE ONES WHO LIVE IN THE APPARTMENTS, BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN LOW INCOME HOUSING DOESN'T MAKE YOU A BAD PERSON. ONE PERSON SAID THIS DIDN'T START TILL THE APPARTMENTS WERE BIULT, WELL I AM HERE TO TELL YOU THIS HAS HAPPENED MORE THAN ONCE TO ME AND THE OTHER NEIGHBOR BEFORE THE APPARTMENTS WERE BUILT, AND A FRIEND ON DOWN THE ROAD ASWELL. THE RED JEEP THAT MIGHT BE INVOLED THAT WAS PARKED IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE IS FROM LAWRENCEBURG NOT THE APPARTMENTS. AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE COMMIT ABOUT YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE WHEN YOU LEAVE YOU KEYS IN YOUR CAR, WELL WHAT IF THIS WAS A CRIME AGAINST A WOMEN WHO WAS RAPED AND WAS DRESSED UNLADY LIKE WOULD YOU SAY SAID GOT WHAT SHE DESERVED BECAUSED OF THE WAY SHE WAS DRESSED. I THINK NOT. SO LETS NOT RUSH TO BLAME THE LOW INCOME WE ALL HAVE SOME ONE IN ARE FAMILIES THAT ARE LOW INCOME AND THAT YOU KNOW THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE. I JUST WANTED PEOPLE TO KNOW THIS WAS HAPPENED WAY BEFORE THE APPARMENTS WERE BUILT. I ASKED THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCATION TO PUT IN OUR NEWS LETTER THE FIRST TIME I WAS VANDALIZED, AND GOT NO REPLY, I GUESS THEY DIDN'T WANTED PEOPLE TO THINK THIS WAS A BAD NEIGHBORHOOD TO LIVE IN. MAYBE NOW THAT THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE PERSON INVOLVED THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION WILL TAKE ACTION NO MATTER IF IT'S ONE PERSON OR A GROUP OF PEOPLE. THANK YOU!!!!

    I posted a comment last night that never made it to the board. In that post I stated that I put my first couple posts on the board to get people out of their politically correct shell. I do not support my first couple posts because they were lies. I get tired of people being afraid to comment because everything and everybody has to be so careful and politically correct so not to offend anyone. I actually teach journalism, don't make anywhere near what I posted and am not the type of person to believe God would punish someone just because they choose to spend their money on whatever they want. I am very pleased to see people coming out and bashing my "comments" and taking a stance. It's refreshing to see people who still aren't afraid to stick up for someone and actually say what they truly feel. For that I thank you and I do apologize for being so negative, but it was done for a reason.

    I live Sunningdale Dr. and I have also worked hard for the few things I do have. I plan on keeping them. Leaving keys in cars is also stupid and asking for trouble. Some of the comments grouping a persons economic status or racial background is out of line and ignorant. I live there and I consider Gleneagles a middle class neighborhood...not upscale. It's actually safe to say that Gleneagles is a pretty economically diversified neighborhood. I'm glad Jeb makes $120,000 per year and I'm sad that he sounds so ignorant. Remember not to group all Gleneages residents the same just as you took offense at someone grouping others.

    The problems didnt happen until those apartments opened. Maybe it is coincidence and maybe it is not. Maybe it is Jebs fault. He sounds like an (edited) anyway.

    The only thing I'll say about some (not all) people who drive these expensive cars that really tick me off is when they park their car in someplace like Meijer's parking lot and place their car in a position that takes up two or more parking spots. To me, that's kind of arrogant and pretentious to think you are more special than someone who might be driving an old Ford Taurus or something else. With that said, nobody deserves to have their vehicle stolen or vandalized. The only problem is when you do own one of the more expensive luxury or sports vehicles, you do become a bigger target than someone like me who drives a 1998 Nissan Sentra.

    I live on Sunningdale Dr. in GlenEagles...and I agree there are snobs in my neighborhood...in fact snobs are in every neighborhood, but we also have very good hard working folks who live here rising families. I'm one of those hard working slobs and I don't own a luxury car and I don't think I'm any better than anyone else. I just want a safe place to live and raise my family. I grew up poor in eastern Kentucky and things were never easy to come by for me. I have worked hard to have everything I have now and I want to keep it and my family safe

    Wow, when did I start living in an "upscale" neighborhood? That's news to me. Upscale to me would be someplace like Andover. My house is no where near the size or price of those. I feel like George Jefferson now. Come on Weezie, we're movin' on up!
