Rash of weekend vehicle burglaries

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is investigating three weekend vehicle burglaries in the Gardnerville Ranchos and one in Indian Hills.

A resident of the 1200 block of Alicia Drive reported the loss Friday of $1,254 in items taken from his truck, including a laptop computer. The victim told deputies he left the driver's side window open 3-to-4 inches.

On Saturday, a resident of the 800 block of Wagon said a stereo CD player had been pulled out of the dash. The victim said the vehicle was locked, but he left the window open 3-to-4 inches.

A woman who lives in the 1300 block of Muir Drive reported Sunday that $8,000 in cash had been taken from her vehicle along with her purse that contained her driver's license, bank cards, Social Security cards, food stamp cards and 150 compact discs.

She told deputies she had the $8,000 to pay her bankruptcy attorney. She left her purse in her vehicle after she unloaded groceries. The victim could not remember if she had locked the vehicle.

Sunday afternoon, deputies were called to a residence in the 800 block of Amador Court. A man reported he parked his unlocked vehicle Saturday night in front of the address. Sunday morning he noticed several items missing including a leather duty belt, handcuffs and case, radio holder, flashlight holder and a state employee identification card.
