Nan Vincent has lived on Walnut Street in Allegan for the last 9 years, and has never had a problem with her car being broken into until now.  According to the Allegan Police Department, there have been more than 50 car break-ins in a little more than 2 weeks.

“When I went to get in the car, everything was all over the front seat, and I knew,” Vincent said.

Nan says she left her car unlocked, making it easy for the thieves to just open the door and grab and go. They took small silver change and left her golf clubs that were sitting in the back of her car.

“It really is kind of a shame to think that’s what they’re doing in the middle of the night. If that’s what they’re doing to get money, it’s really a shame,” Vincent said.

The police department isn’t releasing any information about their investigation, but residents think it might be young kids committing this crime. Nan says she plans on keeping her car doors locked from now on.
