Thieves hit one central Kentucky neighborhood hard early Thursday morning.
Many families in the Seminole Trail and Paynes Crossing areas of Georgetown woke up to find thieves had broken into their cars, and stolen many items.
Georgetown Police say they have received at least 18 burglary reports so far.
From one vehicle alone, police say around $3,000 worth of work tools and equipment were stolen.
Police are also concerned about some of the other items the thieves got away with.
"We have had some firearms taken, so significant thefts," Georgetown Police Lt. Robert Swanigan said. "The word we want to get out is to lock your vehicles."
Police say in the majority of these cases, the cars had been left unlocked.
Police also stress the importance of keeping all valuable items in your car out of sight.
Since the beginning of the summer, Georgetown Police say they have received more than 70 complaints of theft or damage to vehicles in the same part of the city.
