Rash of break-ins reported in four Lexington neighborhoods

"Everything up and down Winchester Road at least seems to be like a prime target," says Royster Road resident Jimmy Clifford.

He's including his property on the list. The homeowner named off about half a dozen people he knows in Lexington who've had their cars and garages broken into recently. All the thefts he knows about have happened in the very early morning hours. Thieves broke in to his shed, but didn't take anything. He thinks they were looking for stereo equipment and electronics, the same kinds of items missing from his neighbor's cars and garages.

"Now you can't sleep at night thinking that that you're gonna be hit again," says Clifford.

He lives on Royster Road, but he says if you go a mile in either direction down Winchester Road, you will find more victims. He says thieves are targeting homes like his, and he's put some precautions in place to make sure no one breaks into his garage again.

"I have since put in burglar alarms and motion sensors and I'm just sorta waiting now for the time that it goes off and I can greet them with my little hand gun."

Friends who've been hit in other subdivisions like Greenbrier and Eastpoint, are keeping a close eye on their valuables, too.

"We've since put up these no trespassing signs that tells them when they see it, they're not allowed on this property," says Clifford.
