RIO RANCHO, N.M. - A string of car break-ins in a normally quiet neighborhood has people some people in Rio Rancho shaken.
"I feel violated," said Casey Miles. She regrettably left her car door open last night. "Apparently someone broke into some cars," she said
Miles said she knows of four or five other cars that got hit Sunday night, in or near the Loma Linda Loop.
But, the thieves weren’t after electronics or typical valuables.
"They took all the information out of the glove box,” Miles said. “They took off with our registration and our insurance. And because of the information we had in our car, we've had to cancel our accounts and let our insurance company know."
She said she was told it’s a common thing criminals are looking for.
"They can use that to get out of tickets. They can use your information when they get pulled over and they can also use it for identity theft," Miles said.
She thinks these burglars are well seasoned because they were able to avoid being detected on the security camera directly above the car.
"Our camera didn't catch it, we're not sure how that happened,” Miles said.
She said a silver four-door sedan was seen creeping around the neighborhood.
Multiple calls to Rio Rancho Police were not returned.
