Multiple car break-ins reported in west Toledo near Willys Parkway

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Car break-ins have been reported near Willys Parkway before and it doesn't seem to be getting any better.

One family living off Willys Parkway says they're uneasy about leaving cars parked outside.

Resident Sandy Miller says just a few weeks ago they saw someone trying to break into one car while it was parked in their driveway. Then Friday they found their car that was parked in the street had been targeted by thieves again.

"They broke the dash, they tried to hot wire it," said Miller. "There were wires hanging down and they took his work clothes and tools and a BB gun that looks like a handgun."

The people who live around the area say there is a strong police presence and they hope the people responsible are found soon.
