So far this year, at least 215 break-ins have been reported in the neighborhood.

Police say most of the crimes take less than a minute to carry out and in every one of the burglaries, property such AS iPods, laptops and GPS devices are taken.

Officials are urging people not to leave valuables in the car, and they warn drivers should not park on streets with buildings only on one side, saying thieves can easily run out of view into wooded areas.
