Eleven vehicle burglaries were committed primarily on North Mesa overnight.
A few cars also were burglarized in Quemazon and the 2500 Circle neighborhoods.
Los Alamos Deputy Police Chief Randy Foster explained that most of the vehicles broken into were unlocked and the missing items were left visible on the vehicles front or rear seats.
The items stolen were mainly small in size such as leathermans and binoculars, he said.
“These burglaries appear to be crimes of opportunity,” Foster said. “We really want to remind community members to lock their car doors and keep all items out of sight – the more difficult you make it, the less likely you will become a victim.”
Foster said the police do not have any suspects in custody yet but that they are pursuing leads.
