White Oak police Chief Lou Bender urges residents to lock their cars and not leave valuables on prominent display.

Bender said vehicle break-ins have been reported this week along McCully Street and at Rainbow Village Shopping Center.

The chief said there have been other break-ins reported in recent weeks.

Thieves stole spare change from one car and a purse and a briefcase from others.

“If you see someone prowling around, call 911,” he said.

Earlier this year, a number of unlocked cars were rifled in residential areas of Pleasant Hills.
