The Limestone County Sheriff's Office is investigating multiple vehicle break-ins that happened Thursday morning at the Cambridge Lane subdivision.

WAAY 31 talked with folks whose vehicles were targeted.

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office has not released a photo of the third suspect.

"We woke up, my mom’s car was trashed on the inside. The neighbors called and said that we should check our cars for everything," Nathan Perry said. "We just found that they had stolen a bunch of stuff like change, and even receipts were gone.”

Nathan Perry was in town for just two days, visiting his mom, when his car was broken into.

“The first night we were here, I came back around 9:00 p.m., and I was like ‘I think the car’s unlocked. I have important stuff in there, I should probably lock it.’ And, then, last night, I was like, ‘Well, whatever, I’ll just leave it unlocked. We leave tomorrow anyway.' And, of course, this happens.”

Perry said he couldn’t believe it when he found out there were other victims.

“I don’t know how someone goes through this entire area without any car alarms going off, and being super successful," he said.

Other neighbors said they weren't surprised.

“Crime has just gotten so bad," Margie Girard said. "It’s going to happen everywhere. You just can’t take your neighborhood for granted.”

Girard has a word of advice after several of her neighbors’ cars were tampered with.

“I would encourage everybody to just make it a habit, before they go to bed, to go check their vehicles," she said. "Just to make sure their vehicles are locked, and, then, come in and lock their doors behind them.”

Perry says the incident has reminded him not to leave valuables in plain sight.

“When you live in a neighborhood like this, where things like that don’t tend to happen a lot, you kind of forget that you can really lose valuable stuff," he said.

Perry told WAAY 31 the unfortunate experience now has him being extra cautious.

“Just leaving the house now, I made sure everything was locked," he said. "It does worry me a little bit. You just never know.”

The sheriff's office says there are three suspects at this time, and investigators are gathering photo evidence. Anyone with information about the break-ins is asked to call 256-232-0111.

Athens police say they're also working to identify the two men in these pictures, who they say stole items that include leaf blowers, a jacket, prescription medication and an Apple watch. If you have security camera images or information about the identity of the men, Athens police ask you to contact Det. Jarrod Smith at 256-233-6801.
