Police say more than 20 cars had been targeted.
It is said that this is a common sight for those who are driving through 51st and 52nd streets. Garbage bags taped over vehicle windows and glass shattered on the pavement.
Based on the evidence, police say the suspects used a puncture tool to break the windows more easily.
Residents of the area with garbage cans were cleaning up the glass and duct-taping garbage bags where the windows once were.
Though most of the residents say they didn’t have valuables stolen, that their glove compartments were rummaged through. Police say this is most likely because they were looking for things such as cash and guns.
The Savannah Police Department, Forensic Unit, and detectives are investigating the area.
People said that degree of this incident is nothing he’s ever seen before.
Neighbors stated they didn’t hear any vehicle alarms go off and so they say they had no reason to think that anything was going on right outside their front doors.
Henry says what happened here is a reminder that people should never leave anything valuable in an unattended car.
“You hear it all the time, don’t leave valuables in your car. It’s something I try to remember, but it’s easy to forget,” Henry said.
