Burbank police issued a citywide crime alert Tuesday evening after a rash of vehicle burglaries in west Burbank late last week.
Possibly 18 vehicles were hit by the same burglars between the 300 and 1300 blocks of North Frederic Street, North Lincoln Street, North Myers Street and North Lamer Street on the crime spree Jan. 6 and 7, said Sgt. Robert Quesada.
"Most of the incidents occurred in the evening, and it seems like they were going right up the streets," Quesada said. "If the cars were unlocked, they would just take whatever they can."
