EXCLUSIVE:Man Breaks Into Multiple Cars in Prattville Hotel Parking Lots
CBS 8 is Taking Action Against Crime -- Prattville police asked us for help cracking down on a rash of car break-ins at hotels. It doesn't sound like a major crime... until you're a victim. We have exclusive video of how these break-ins are happening.
Police say the thief is smashing into car windows and stealing electronics, but here's the catch: everytime he's making his rounds to these hotels he's using a different vehicle.
Edwards says cars at his LaQuinta Inn have been broken into six times since the March 29th incident. You see a dark Chevy Tahoe park at the hotel, a male wearing dark clothes gets out and shines a flashlight against the windows, then smashes them in.
Here's video from the Days Inn on April 21st: he's driving a white Dodge Calibur.
Over the weekend (Saturday), police say the man drove a Chevrolet Impala at the Days Inn and broke into several cars.
Police say the burglar is stealing hundreds of dollars worth of items everytime.
To re-iterate: Police say the person was seen driving a dark Chevy Tahoe, a white Dodge Calibur and a Chevy Impala. If you can help Prattville police solve this crime, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at 215-STOP.
