LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - WKYT is tracking a rash of car break-ins at a popular Lexington park. Masterson Station Park has had a few car break-ins in the last few weeks, and one group's doing their part to alert families of the thefts.
LYSA board members can't pinpoint the exact number of break-ins near their Masterson Station fields, but they all agree that it was enough to send out warnings. Board members say someone has been breaking into locked cars during summer soccer games. Letters went out to every parent and player that uses the Lexington Youth Soccer Association fields, warning them of what's happening, encouraging them to keep their eyes peeled.
"I've never seen anything that looks suspicious," explains soccer spectator Christine Voll, "it's just gonna make me more alert, make me lock my car, and not leave my windows cracked as much."
Players expect a few changes of habit to keep any future thieves away.
"When we pull in, we just leave our windows down," said player Jaime Summers, "leave out all our valuables, stuff out there. So I plan to tell them to secure their cars and valuables so that way it keeps anybody from being tempted in trying to steal the items."
