Martin County Sheriff responded to a rash of auto burglaries with gun thefts

Martin County, Fl (treasurecoast.com) – The Martin County Sheriff says this is not good news but it’s information you need to know.
Martin County Deputies have responded to a rash of auto burglaries in communities throughout Martin County, specifically in the Palm City and Jensen Beach and Jensen Beach area.
Just twelve days into the New Year, thieves have successfully stolen six firearms from vehicles parked in residential communities. All of those vehicles were left unlocked. Now a half dozen guns are in the hands of criminals.
This exterior home security footage (click on link to see video) shows a group of burglars moving from vehicle to vehicle checking doors. For the most part, if the door is locked, they move on. If the door is left unlocked, they move through the vehicle quickly. They are looking for guns, and in six cases, they found them. Stolen guns almost always lead to more crimes.
We cannot stress to you enough how dangerous of a trend this is. We can only ask you to help us put a stop to it. Lock your vehicles at night, remove all valuables from plain sight, and REMOVE ALL FIREARMS. If you see or hear something suspicious, call 911.
