The Nashville Police Department responded to seven different reports of auto burglaries on the morning of Monday, March 23.
The break-ins occurred in vehicles on the 400 block of South Washington Street, the 700 and 800 blocks of S. Lafayette St., the 700 and 800 blocks of S. Broadway St., and on the 700 block of E. Adams St.
“They were all unlocked vehicles,” said Nashville Police Chief Brian Fletcher, adding that it was assumed they were all connected.
The police responded to the burglaries on Monday morning, so the burglaries occurred either late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
Fletcher said there were no suspects yet and that the investigation was ongoing.
Residents should remember to lock their cars and, if possible, remove all their valuables from the vehicles.
“Locking it would be a deterrent, at least with this rash of them,” Fletcher said, “but there are times when people will break a window or something to get in. If you don’t have anything for them to take, they more than likely wouldn’t be bothering your stuff.”
