Greenfield Police Department shared on it’s Facebook page it’s seen 16 car break-ins during a six day span. Every single one of the cars, according to police, was unlocked. 

“These guys are going through subdivisions looking for car doors that are open,” said Detective Sgt. Scott Zienkiewicz.

“This time of year, we’re getting closer to the holiday season, they are usually crimes of opportunities,” continued Zienkiewicz. 

In the Facebook post, the department is also sharing a home surveillance video from a neighbor where a suspect is seen trying to open the doors of two locked cars. He’s unsuccessful and walks away. 

Many of the car break-ins happened on the 4800 hundred block of S. 72nd. Police reports indicate six happened on the same day, Oct. 26. 

A couple more happened on Tara Hill Drive. Police said the suspects didn’t steal anything of major value. In one case, the victim reported $20 in change was stolen from his vehicle. 

Police haven’t made any arrests in the break-ins but said detectives are working on some leads.
