This message board encourages people to keep their vehicles locked. Several unlocked vehicles were broken into early Wednesday morning in Summerfield.

A rash of vehicle break-ins is prompting the Guilford County Sheriff's Office to urge citizens to lock their cars.

According to Capt. Phil Byrd, Commander of District 1, several break-ins of unlocked vehicles occurred in the Summerfield area during the early morning hours of Oct. 10.

Byrd said many of the break-ins were avoidable if folks would take the time to lock their vehicles, even if they are at home.

"If the property is not in sight, usually suspects will not break a window," Byrd said. "The reason they break the window is because they either see the property visible, or they see a female exit her vehicle without a pocketbook. These are the only two reasons suspects take the risk in breaking a vehicle window."

Anybody with information on the break-ins is encouraged to call District 1 at 643-2300.
