LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Lake Charles police are investigating a string of vehicle break-ins along Meadow Drive.
"After we didn't see anyone we just dismissed it," Honora said.
The next morning, the neighborhood she said is normally quiet was turned upside down as burglars broke into at least four vehicles.
Lake Charles Deputy Police Chief Mark Kraus said investigators are busy looking into the incident.
"Our obligation now is to find out who's responsible for this," he said.
Authorities believe teenagers were involved because nothing was missing from the cars.
"Sometimes good people forget to lock their car door and that's where these little petty criminals come in and try to seize that moment," Kraus said.
Honora said even though criminals didn't steal her property they did rob her of her positive outlook.
Police said locking car doors and joining neighborhood watch programs can help prevent these types of crimes.
