The Linover Improvement Association posted to Facebook that a total of 14 break-ins happened over the weekend and encouraged residents to call police to report the thefts.

"Alert! There were at least 14 vehicles that were ransacked over the weekend on Brookwood, Lyndale, and Elinor," the group wrote on their Facebook page. "Please let us know if your vehicle was as well. Check around your yard for wallets and disposed of items. Some empty wallets have been found in the neighborhood."

According to the Facebook post the vehicles that were broken into were unlocked, and the group reminded residents to lock their vehicles at night.

For his part, Brooks could only confirm the two thefts from auto over the weekend.
