Thomas County authorities are warning residents to lock their cars after more than a dozen vehicles were broken into during the night.

Officials say no major thefts were reported; victims claim their cars looked like they had been 'rifled through' and only small things were taken, such as loose change.

Authorities are using this string of break-ins as a cautionary tale to car owners to lock their doors, even if the car is parked in the driveway or front yard: every vehicle broken into had been left unlocked.

They say the easiest way to prevent tempting a burglar is to keep valuables, like laptops or purses, out of sight - or better yet, out of the car altogether.
