Thieves Target Cars On South Overlook, Steal Items Inside

Cleveland Heights Police said car owners reported a stolen purse, GPS unit, iPad and more.

At least eight people reported that thieves stole items from their cars overnight on Oct. 24 on the 2200 and 2300 blocks of South Overlook Road.

Though many car owners said they locked their doors, police could not find visible signs of force, and believe many left their doors unlocked.

Among the items reported missing were an iPad, GPS unit and purse.

Reports compiled from call logs and information from the Cleveland Heights Police Department.

Well... if they were too dumb to not know better than to leave valuables in an unlocked car can't blame the thieves....

Wow, Bonnie blame the victim -- I don't think that is right. After seeing the Accused with Jodi Foster I have a whole different viewpoint. The perpetrators of this crime are wrong.

While it is not ok for people to steal, I think it is reasonable to expect people to take precautions with items of value. Leaving a purse, iPad, in a car is just not smart, regardless of whether the car is locked or not. GPS units usually live in cars, but shouldn't be left in plain sight. A little common sense can go a long way.

They should leave explosives in their cars. Scum breaks in and BOOM--his arms fly off. Scum bags.
