BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - There have been 12 vehicle burglaries in the city of Bryan since the beginning of March.

While Bryan Police were investigating these crimes they discovered all the vehicles that were burglarized were reportedly left unlocked.

“They’ll go around neighborhoods and they’ll pull car door handles until they find one that’s open. They may sit in your car and rummage through all of your belongings until they find something worthwhile,” said Bryan Police Public Information Officer Kole Taylor.

Out of the 12 vehicle burglaries, five of them came from the same residence in the 900 block of Clearleaf Dr.

A 17-year-old suspect in one of those burglaries was arrested this week and the rest are still being investigated.

The others were located on Kent Street, Archer Drive, Agee Court, and Texas Avenue.

Authorities also suggest parking cars in a garage if residents are able to.

Parking under street lights or in front of cameras is also a safety precaution Bryan Police recommends.

“If you have a garage, that’s a great way to keep your vehicle safe. It adds another barrier for someone gaining access to your vehicle,” said Taylor.

Bryan Police also has a 9 p.m. routine that residents can go through once they are settled in their homes for the night.
